A documentary that examines the 1989 case of five black and Latino teenagers who were convicted of raping a white woman in Central Park. After having spent between 6 and 13 years each in prison, a serial rapist confessed to the crime.
Teen Michelle Carter's actions shocked a nation - but what really happened behind closed doors? This HBO special showcases the prosecution's point of view and alternately the defense's. Which side do you fall on?
The interview skills of Oprah was very mediocre on here, almost childish. All she kept doing is asking 11 year old type questions and saying mmhmm, ok. Didn't even really need the cast on their, only the real Central Park 5. Seeing them on stage, it becomes even more apparent of how the system messed them up mentally. Oprah interview gets a negative 8, Ava's presence a negative 4, the movie cast a negative 2, but the real individuals brings it up to a score of 4.
