Storyline:
In 1977, Roman Polanski was arrested in Los Angeles on charges he gave drugs and had sex with a 13-year-old girl he was photographing for Vogue. Eleven months later, having pled guilty to one count, he fled to Europe before sentencing. This film examines that year-long period, using archival footage of the media frenzy and of Polanski's life before the charges, clips from his films, and contemporary interviews with many of the principles - attorneys, the victim, and Polanski's friends and associates. Polanski remains enigmatic, but portraits emerge of the machinations of justice and of a judge more interested in his image than his word or the law.

Despite the fact that what Polanski did was a crime (he plead guilty to a single charge), JUSTICE was not carried out, in that he did not, and would receive a fair and unbiased sentencing hearing. The judge himself was more interested in making headlines and not being the "scapegoat", than he was in ensuring Polanski's sentence be just. His confinement for the "42 days" was not, by legal definition, allowed to be a "sentence", and that alone ws grounds for an appeal, and the judge knew it. This is a movie that attempts to set ther record straight, and it gives some really good insight into the "behind the scenes" wrangling that the judge attempted to pull with Polanski's attorney, the DA, and the victim's attorney. Not defending the guy, but when Justice is compromised for the sake of media, headlines, or other motivations....anyone would be justified to do what Polanski did, in their self-interest of wanting due process. The judge was to blame for that. See it.
