New JonBenet Ramsey Documentary Features Colorado Actors [WATCH]
Casting JonBenet is an admittedly chilling ‘hybrid documentary’ coming to Netflix this spring, and you can finally see the full-length trailer here.
The film, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, is unlike any other attempt at re-telling the unsolved 1996 pageant queen murder, which shook not only the nation, but especially the city of Boulder, Colorado, where it happened.
‘It was the biggest thing to happen to Boulder in a very long time.’ –Casting JonBenet.
As seen in the trailer, director Kitty Green auditions several local actors and actresses to play the roles of Jon Benet and her family, in what is described as an ‘exploration of crime, guilt and personal bias.’
Casting JonBenet, according to TV Guide, is ‘the result of the filmmaker’s 15 months in Boulder, Colorado (JonBenet’s hometown) capturing the reactions of residents reflecting on the trial, and its aftermath.’
It’ll give you goosebumps.
