Amazon is offering the film ‘Ken Burns: The Central Park Five’ for just $1 to own. That’s down $12 from its regular price and the lowest we’ve seen it drop. Also available to rent for just $1 is ‘XXX: Return Of Xander Cage’ and ‘Rings’. When renting from Amazon you have 30 days to start watching the film and 48 hours to finish once you’ve started it.
In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were arrested and later convicted of raping a white woman in New York City’s Central Park. The Central Park Five tells the story of that horrific crime, the rush to judgment by the police, a media clamoring for sensational stories and an outraged public, and the five lives upended by this miscarriage of justice.
