When They See Us plot

In 1989, five teenage boys went to New York's Central Park in the evening. That same night, in that same park, jogger Trisha Meili was brutally raped and left for dead. The police soon arrested the five and their convictions were already a fact in 1990, with allegations of rape and assault. For years, the boys, their families and their lawyers battled to prove their innocence. This only worked in 2014, after they had to spend all that time in prison.

The average is very high everywhere.

It's a very nice mini-series that describes quite accurately what has happened, but it could have been written a bit more raw (and at times more coherent).

Also in terms of design, only the first episode was good.

Last episode dragged on too long.

Impressive four-part miniseries that tells the true story of the Central Park Five; a group of random youths who were suspected of a rape case in 1989 and then disappeared behind bars without any evidence. You have to struggle through the stereotypical white characters that populate the first two episodes, but then you have something. Beautifully played and beautifully put together, with a convincing image of the time and beautiful diffuse camera work. Captivatingly told and at times quite gripping.

A gripping and impressive miniseries, which you really have to watch in parts to process.

The story is strong, well portrayed and the acting of the young cast is superb. Shocking and fascinating to see how poorly the American justice system functions! Must see!
