To top it all off, Knox enters the courtroom while smiling and waving like a celebrity. Or as the movie puts it, "Foxy Knoxy swept into court like an invitee to a gala event." But justice prevails: Knox is found guilty, and the film wraps up with some tasteful text insinuating that her parents were liars too.
But four years after Lifetime won the race to shamelessly cash in on human tragedy, Italy's highest court acquitted Knox, citing "stunning flaws" in an investigation which, amongst other things, "ignored expert testimony." That crack lead detective? He thought supernatural elements were involved, that Knox had taken part in a Satanic orgy, and that the case was "spooky" because "it happened on a Thursday night ... that's when the witches held their Sabbath."
The movie repeatedly references Knox's "cartwheels" to show how little care she gave to the investigation and paint her as a cruel, frivolous girl. In reality, she did the splits. Which, yes, is also weird thing to do during an interrogation (for anybody but Van Damme), but apparently that was part of a stretching routine she did, because that interview dragged on for 50 hours. In fact, ABC News found at least 15 moments that Lifetime outright fabricated in order to tell a more sensationalist story (including inventing damning witnesses and incriminating actions for Knox). So let that be a lesson to you: If you jump to conclusions and tell lies to support your point, absolutely nothing bad will happen to you, and everybody will forget about it almost immediately.
