Quick Tips: Devil’s Knot (2013)

Presented at 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, Devil’s Knot, directed by Atom Egoyan, recalls the shocking, violent murders of three kids and the following trail against the so-called “West Memphis Three”. Colin Firth is Ron Lax, the private investigator who, doubting the Three’s guilt, will try to discover the truth; Reese Witherspoon is Pamela Hobbs, mother of one of the victims.

Although some director’s choices (like showing the characters’ dreams) make the plot even more complicated, Devil’s Knot is a good movie, captivating and touching, making the audience questioning about the “in”-credibility of the whole story. Shaming the lack of advertisment for its broadcast on Italia’s channel Rai 4 – I discovered it by chance.
