Amazon’s $1 HD Digital Rental of the week is Dream/Killer (Reg. $5). Also available on iTunes. This highly-rated movie follows the story of Ryan Ferguson, a 19-year old that was accused of murdering a sports editor in Columbus, MO.
In 2005, 20-year-old Ryan Ferguson was convicted and sentenced to 40 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Dream/Killer is the story of how his father Bill embarked on a 10-year campaign to prove Ryan’s innocence. The film is chock-full of incredible characters. From the questionable District Attorney Kevin Crane, and the highly-confused witness Chuck Erickson, to the high-powered Chicago attorney Kathleen Zellner, the doc depicts both a highly flawed justice system, as well as one that can work brilliantly. Behind bars, Ryan provides a candid and intimate look at his life, while gorgeous animation is used to recreate his 10-year ordeal. Poignant footage from the Ferguson family archive is interspersed throughout creating a highly personal and revealing film.
iTunes is also offering Pelé: Birth of a Legend as a $0.99 HD Digital Rental (Reg. $5).
