What is the plot?
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the case of Caylee Anthony, let me briefly fill you in. On July 15, 2008, two-year-old Caylee was reported missing after not being seen for 31 days.
A 6-week trial concluded that Caylee drowned in the Anthony family’s swimming pool. Despite many believing the mother, Casey, was involved in the murder of her daughter, on July 5th 2011, Casey was found not guilty and acquitted of the capital murder charge. The not-guilty verdict was hugely publicised garnering much public contention. Attention around the trial reached national levels.
What has been revealed in the trailer so far?
Not a lot. After 13 years of never having given an in-person interview, you may be wondering, ‘why now?’
“Why talk to me now when you’re not getting creative control?” an interviewer asks Anthony in the trailer. The one-minute clip concludes with the intertitle, “Casey Anthony Speaks.”
