Summary, etc.:
When the curtain rose on the murder trial of the Pamela Smart murder case 23 years ago, the stage was set for the birth of reality TV. Accused of plotting the 1990 murder of her husband Gregory, the 22-year-old Smart was subsequently convicted in the first fully-televised, gavel-to-gavel court case, which has inspired TV shows, books, plays and feature films. Pamela Smart has always maintained her innocence. An official selection of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, CAPTIVATED: THE TRIALS OF PAMELA SMART explores how the media coverage of the case may have influenced the trial and sentencing. Featuring an exclusive new interview with Smart herself, as well as interviews with prosecuting and defending attorneys, journalists who covered the case, childhood friends, former inmates who served time with her, and, in the first interview since his release, one of the four boys convicted of the crime.
