Weirdly enough, for a time i was married into this family (Sonia Jacobs is my former mother-in-law), and was privy to many of the goings-on during the time of Ms. Jacobs incarceration, appeal, and subsequent release. Overall, i thought this project was well-done, although moved a little slow in spots.
My only real gripes are with a couple of the production details.
1.)The majority of this story takes place in south Florida, which is where the police officers were killed, and where Ms. Jacobs was incarcerated. Why do i see mountains in the background? Did the Rockies go on vacation?
2.) The shots of Sonia interacting with her cell mate were warm and fuzzy, but the cells at the facility she was in at that time looked nothing like that... in fact, they more closely resembled dorm-rooms. No bars, no bolted-to-the-wall bunks.
Sorry if this is perceived as nit-picking, but i hate blatant gaffs/inaccuracies in 'true story' films, especially when i see it so glaringly.
