An original movie for Court TV, THE INTERROGATION OF MICHAEL CROWE is based on the horrifyingly true story of the Californian Crowe family's double-victimization. When 12-year-old Stephanie is stabbed in her sleep, the police working on the investigation turn to the closest suspect: her 14-year-old brother, Michael. As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that the policemen are doing whatever they can to cajole a confession from the boy, convinced of his guilt by such peripheral evidence as his interest in Dungeons & Dragons. Starring Ally Sheedy (THE BREAKFAST CLUB, HIGH ART) as mom Cheryl Crowe, this tragic tale of injustice sheds light on some of the faults and holes inherent in the judicial system, among which human infallibility takes its place.
