About The Face of an Angel 💬

  • Inspired by Amanda Knox Case.

Why are we fascinated by murder? Inspired by the killing of British student Meredith Kercher in Italy, THE FACE OF AN ANGEL looks beyond the salacious headlines to explore both the media and the public's obsession with violent stories, whether fictional or real.

''Beatrice looked at me, her eyes were full of sparks of love, of such divinity. That, vanquished, my virtue ran away and I was as if lost, my eyes lowered.''

  • A shocking crime, a media obsession, in a city of secrets.

Thomas Lang (Daniel Brühl) is a film director who is offered the chance to adapt a book by American journalist Simone Ford (Kate Beckinsale), which recounts the controversial trial of American student Jessica Fuller (Genevieve Gaunt) for the murder of her flatmate Elizabeth Pryce (Sai Bennett). To help with his research, Simone takes Thomas to Siena, where he is disturbed by the media frenzy that has developed around the case.

''In September 2007, two young women arrived at the university town of Siena. They were looking forward with excitement to spending a year as a student in Italy. Elizabeth Pryce and Jessica Fuller, both rented rooms in this house, on the edge of the medieval town. Two months later, Elizabeth was dead, and Jessica had been accused of her murder, along with her boyfriend, Carlo Elias. The case made headlines around the world, and the focus of attention was the character of Jessica Fuller. Was she the cunning manipulator described by the prosecution? The quirky student described by her mother... She's smart. She's artistic. She's imaginative. She's deep... or 'Jessica Rabbit,' as described by the British media. A sexy, drug-taking student killer.''

''On Halloween, Jessica was working in Bar Rumba, while Elizabeth partied late into the night with some English friends. Elizabeth spent the next day recovering. The last time she was seen alive was 8:45 p.m. No one knows exactly what happened after that. The only thing known for certain is Elizabeth died a brutal and horrible death. One year later, the families of Elizabeth and Jessica were in court to hear the verdict.''

After visiting the crime scene, Thomas, who is separated from his wife and daughter, begins to question not only the motives of the people around him, from the financiers of the film to the press corps, but also his own. As Thomas descends into his own personal torment, he is rescued by his friendship with a young, guileless British student, Melanie (Cara Delevingne). Through Melanie he begins to realize that he no longer wants to make a film about violence and guilt - he wants to make a film about love and innocence. He wants to make a film that will honor the victim, that will focus on the life, the love and the happiness that have been taken from her.

''The power of my sighs fills me with anguish. Many times, while contemplating death, it drains the color from my face, and I begin to tremble from the pain. In weeping, I call out to Elizabeth, 'Can you really be dead?' And just calling to her restores my soul. If anyone heard me, they, too, would grieve. And what my life has been like since she left this earth, there is no one that can tell.''

Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were freed in 2011 after being cleared of their 2009 convictions over the killing. On January 30 the original convictions were reinstated by at a court in Florence. Lawyers for the pair say they intend to take an appeal to the highest court. Winterbottom has reportedly said he does not plan to change his film in light of the convictions.

Dividing the thriller to three parts like Dante's Divine Comedy, Winterbottom is focused on shedding light to a murder story imbued with sex, horror, and mystery.
