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?
I agree with what the makers were trying to do here. My negative points aren't really based on the content, but more how it was handled. The topic at hand is dramatic all by itself so the addition of dramatic music, repeated statements for effect, etc was not needed and actually did the documentary a disservice in my opinion. It took away from the seriousness of the material being discussed. It could have been edited down a bit, too. That being said, I haven't really followed R. Kelly since the initial tape was released (that was enough for me to stop consuming his music), so I learned a lot. Know your worth people and know the signs. No amount of money or fame gives someone the right to mistreat another.
