The Staircase


France, 2004
Documentary, Crime, TV Mini-series


Granted unusual access to a suspected murderer’s lawyers, home and immediate family, de Lestrade’s cameras capture the defense team as it considers its strategic options. “The staircase” is an engrossing look at contemporary American justice that features more twists than a legal bestseller.
