This is seriously funny and worth checking out.
First off, I apologize for my long blogging absence. I vow that I will make up for lost time as best I can.
Recently I was sent an synopsis for a new documentary called DEAR ZACHARY that looks fascinating….
On November 5, 2001, Dr. Andrew Bagby was murdered in a parking lot in
western Pennsylvania; the prime suspect, his ex-girlfriend Dr. Shirley
Turner, promptly fled the United States for St. Johns, Canada, where she
announced that she was pregnant with Andrew’s child. She named the
little boy Zachary.
Filmmaker Kurt Kuenne, Andrew’s oldest friend, began making a film for
little Zachary as a way for him to get to know the father he’d never
meet. But when Shirley Turner was released on bail in Canada and was
given custody of Zachary while awaiting extradition to the U.S., the
film’s focus shifted to Zachary’s grandparents, David and Kathleen
Bagby, and their desperate efforts to win custody of the boy from the
woman they knew had murdered their son. No one could have foreseen what
I always enjoy true crime stories and I find that documentaries are usually more riveting than fiction. DEAR ZACHARY opens Oct. 31st in New York and on Nov. 7th in Los Angeles (at the Laemmle Sunset 5).
Be sure to watch the trailer on the Variety website.
