A gripping real-life courtroom thriller, The Staircase offers a rare and revealing inside-look at a high-profile murder trial as novelist Michael Peterson is accused of killing wife Kathleen, after she is found dead at the bottom of a staircase in their home.
Academy Award-winning filmmaker Jean-Xavier de Lestrade was granted unprecedented access to the 16-year judicial battle that followed, capturing every moment of this extraordinary story from arrest to verdict, following in intimate detail Peterson’s home, the family and his defence team. Originally released in 2004, the series was critically acclaimed around the world, with BBC Four broadcasting the episodes in the UK. Now, those 10 episodes are returning to our screens, courtesy of Netflix, with three new episodes exclusively commissioned by the streaming giant.
This gripping German drama explores how the tensions of the Second World War and the subsequent Cold War impinged on seemingly united communities. It is a sensitive exploration of homegrown resistance to the Third Reich in Germany, and how real lives were afflicted by the impersonal approach of both the American and Russian Armed forces. Based on the true story of Mödlareuth, which was cruelly divided down the middle between the regimes of the East and West, we witness the town being stricken by the unrelenting force Nazi officers, liberated by the Americans and later seized by the Russians. But the lives of the inhabitants must go on, and they cannot be held hostage by the rules that govern them. Will one ideology prove to be the key to a successful society, or are they both as bad as each other? It stars Jonas Nay, who Walter Presents fans will recognise from Deutschland ’83.
