Description

“This,” said Prosecutor Leroy New, “has been the most terrible crime ever committed in the state of Indiana;” the first crime of child abuse that broke through reticence and denial to register with the public. In Tommy O’Haver’s heartbreaking and hard-hitting film, AN AMERICAN CRIME, Academy Award nominee Catherine Keener portrays Gertrude Baniszewski, the seemingly ordinary housewife who imprisons and tortures a beautiful teenager, played by Gemini Award winner Ellen Page, in the basement of her house – two portrayals that will resonate with audiences long after they leave the theatre. AN AMERICAN CRIME, which also stars James Franco and Bradley Whitford, was produced by First Look Studios and Killer Films/John Wells.
