Capturing the Friedmans
Times & Tickets
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival, CAPTURING THE FRIEDMANS was the most riveting, provocative and hotly debated film of that year.
Despite their predilection for hamming it up in front of home-movie cameras, the Friedmans were a normal middle-class family living in the affluent New York suburb of Great Neck.
One Thanksgiving, as the family gathers at home for a quiet holiday dinner, police officers rush in, accusing Arnold Friedman and his son Jesse of hundreds of shocking crimes.
The film follows their story from the public's perspective and through unique real footage of the family in crisis, shot inside the Friedman house. As the police investigate and the community reacts, the fabric of the family begins to disintegrate, leading to provocative questions about justice, family and ultimately the truth.
