Devil's Knot


West Memphis, Arkansas 1993.  Three children go missing.  A manhunt goes on and the local law enforcement focuses on a group of devil worshipping kids as their primary suspects.  But did they do it or do they just look the part?  Based on a true story, this drama stars Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. 

I wasn't fully pulled in here, possibly because I knew the story, having recently seen the documentary West of Memphis.  So if you haven't seen that doc, don't know the story, and prefer narrative film, then by all means see it.  Otherwise I recommend the doc.

'Devil's Knot' is in limited release in theaters and also available at home on Video on Demand.

Grade: B

Who is this movie for?  You like true stories and small town crime.
