Synopsis:
Reopening a case that has inspired curiosity, controversy, and confusion for over three decades, 'Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired' is an extensive exploration of the circumstances that led up to - and the circus that followed - Polanski's conviction for having unlawful sexual intercourse with Samantha Geimer, a 13 year old minor. Zenovich had unprecedented access to several of the key players in the case, including the lawyers representing the case, the media covering it, and the unusually clear-eyed and candid victim.
Unearthing a trove of telling footage from the past, and combining it with insightful interviews from today, Zenovich brings comprehension and clarity to events long clouded by myth and misconception. A thrilling examination of a case that became the prototype for innumerable Hollywood courtroom scandals to follow, the film becomes a brilliant discourse on the attraction/repulsion that defines celebrity culture in contemporary America.
