Watch A Cry in the Dark

"A family torn apart. A public filled with outrage. A woman accused of murder."
Add to Watchlist

Based on a true story, this movie was based on an Australian mystery. A young mother, played by Meryl Streep in this film, claims that her baby girl was taken into the brush by dingos, an Australian wild dog, and is then faced with a trial and a murder conviction when no one believes her preposterous and unusual story. The media circus that entails, the sorrow and guilt of a young mother who has lost her small child, and the huge mystery that surrounds the whole event make this an eloquent and thought-provoking film.
