This was an excellent movie. It was really depressing but you know it is reality too. There are a lot of Amanda's out there. I don't think she deserved the death penalty at all. I did not catch or either they didn't tell, what happened to Billy Cantor? Was he convicted? I think the movie wanted people to focus more on the situation about teenagers being charged with the death penalty. They should have followed up at the end, please somebody give me an update about what happened to Billy Cantor. I think Amanda Sue was too dim witted or too mentally abused to even realize the seriousness of her crime. She was just looking to be loved, probably feels secure in prison.
