“It’s fascinating history well presented, but that’s only part of what makes this film linger in the mind. The biases and divisions brought to the surface by the Frank case are still easy to find today. So are people who specialize in fear-mongering and fanning small fires into big ones.”
The New York Times – November 1, 2009
“The Frank saga says as much about current events as it does about history.”
The Los Angeles Times – October 30, 2009
“Frank was an ordinary man most distinguished for his outsider status. For that, he was savaged. As Loeterman’s film documents painfully, the scars still haven’t healed.”
The Associated Press – October 29, 2009
“No double murder has altered the nation’s cultural landscape quite like this one. The killings of Mary Phagan and Leo Frank stirred latent antisemitism, racism, sectionalism and bigotry that festered below the Mason-Dixon Line before exploding nationwide, leaving shockwaves still felt today.”
