According to DVDActive, First Look Home Entertainment has announced
the upcoming release of AN AMERICAN CRIME for February 5th, 2008.
Based on a true story that shocked the nation in 1965, the film recounts
one of the most shocking crimes ever committed against a single victim.
Sylvia and Jennie Fae Likens, the two daughters of traveling carnival
workers are left for an extended stay at the Indianapolis (3850 E. New
York St. is hardly suburban, nor was it in 1965, by any stretch of the
imagination.) home of single mother Gertrude Baniszewski and her seven
children. Times are tough, and Gertrude's financial needs cause her to
make this arrangement before realizing how the burden will push her
unstable nature to a breaking point.
What transpires in the next three months is both riveting and horrific,
leaving one child dead and the rest scarred for life. The DVD will present
An American Crime in an R rated release with a widescreen transfer and
optional Spanish subtitles. No further details are known about this
release, but we will provide more information as it becomes available.
Directed by Tommy O’Haver, the film stars Catherine Keener, Ellen Page,
Hayley McFarland, Ari Graynor and Bradley Whitford.
