A star’s involvement with a cause does little to sway me to the rightness of said cause. This is true even with actors and actress whom I like and admire, as many celebrities seem to mistake their fame for correctness. For this reason, I would normally be suspicious of a show featuring Depp, Eddie Vedder, the Dixie Chicks and noted shoplifter-cum-actress, Winona Ryder. However, I have been following the story of the West Memphis Three for years, and for a number of reasons, it resonates deeply with me. Despite the attention this case has received over the years, including two outstanding HBO documentaries (Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills and Paradise Lost 2: Revelations), it still has yet to tickle the greater conscience of the American people, and an injustice remains fully unaddressed.
