The film is not based on real events.
The Marcus Corporation, a theater company in Wisconsin, has decided it will not show the film in several locations in the Milwaukee and Waukesha counties out of respect for the families of the girls and others who have been affected by the case.
Teenagers are engaged in the mental institution
After lengthy judicial procedures, both teenagers accused in the 2014 stab were sent to mental hospitals.
As part of the agreement, according to the law of Wisconsin, a judge found her not guilty of mental illness or defect, which means that she will ultimately not be held criminally responsible for the attack.
Last year, Weier pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree murder due to mental illness or defect as part of a similar plea agreement that would accept the commitment to institutional care. A judge ordered her to spend 25 years in a mental health center in December.
CNN generally does not mention minors accused of crimes, but it makes exceptions if they are accused – as were Geyser and Weier – as adults.
