Who Do You Believe?

Capturing the Friedmans, the most riveting, critically-acclaimed, and hotly debated film of the year explores the elusive nature of truth through the prism of one of the strangest criminal cases in American history.

Despite their tendency to ham it up in front of home-movie cameras, the Friedmans are a seemingly 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, their front door explodes splintered by a police battering ram. Officers rush into the house, accusing Arnold Friendman and his youngest 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 of the Friedman house. As the police investigate, and the community reacts, the fabric of the family begins to disintegrate, revealing provocative questions about justice, family, and - ultimately, truth.
