Moral Bankruptcy Posing as Art: Roman Polanski

Marina Zenovich has made a film about Roman Polanski's sexual abuse of a 13 year old girl in 1977.
Zenovich told Reuters her documentary does not apologize for the French-Polish director, but her take on the murky justice and media hype around the Polanski case might make Americans see him in a different light after he was vilified in the 1970s for having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

No apologies required, but do we really need a sympathetic film about a man who drugged, raped and sodomized a 13 year old girl? For those of you who unclear on exactly what happened can find out here. My two cents, he belongs in France.
