    from Disc Emporium:

    Drama / Reality TV . Cast: Arnold Friedman, David Friedman, Elaine Friedman, Howard Friedman, Jesse Friedman, John McDermott, Seth Friedman . Direction: Andrew Jarecki

    Despite their predilection for hamming it up in front of home-movie cameras, the Friedmans were a 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 Friedman 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 the Friedman house. As the police investigate, and the community reacts, the fabric of the family begins to disintegrate, revealing provocative questions about truth, justice, family, and -ultimately-truth.

    Features: 2 discs . Behind-the-scenes featurette; Unseen home videos of the Friedmans; Short film by director Andrew Jarecki.
