Product Description

On August 26, 1986 18-year-old Jennifer Levin (Lara Flynn Boyle) was strangled to death in New York's Central Park. The prime suspect, her 19-year-old boyfriend Robert (William Baldwin), claimed that it was an accident which ocurred during a 'rough sex' session that Jennifer had initiated. As the media at the time began to question whether Jennifer had 'asked for it' the film looks at both sides of this emotive situation.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Preppie Murder - Worth a look! 29 May 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Why I gave this film 4 stars? Partly for the music and partly for the acting. OK, the acting is not exactly oscar winning stuff, but because this is based on a true story, I found it intriging with overall, good direction, pretty good acting,especially by William Baldwin. Possibly due to his good looks and magnetic personality within the character he was portraying, may have helped him come across rather convincingly. Which gave the viewer an insight on why so many good looking rich girls found him irresitable, especially those who had very little confidence in themselves. Definately worth a look!

2.0 out of 5 stars tape did not play properly 24 May 2013
By H. Gage - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Tape arrived and it had to be rewound to start with and as I played it the picture went away and all there was was sound.
However I did send it back and got a complete refund for it to the gift card I had used so I was happy with that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and Sad 4 Jan 2006
By Diana H. - Published on Amazon.com
I was intrigued by the "Preppie Murder" because it happened when I was the age of the victim and murderer. I watched the movie of course and just saw it again recently. I wonder how the parents of Jennifer felt at how she was portrayed as somewhat of a pest and looking as if she almost pushed Robert Chambers to the breaking point. Other than that...it was a good movie and pretty authentic of the time period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daming Evidence 9 Oct 2001
By Valerie Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
WhAT I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IS HOW COME THERE WERE SO MUCH DAMING EVIDENCE TO CONVICT ROBERT CHAMBERS OF MURDER AND HE STILL GOT THE CHANCE TO PLEAD GUILTY TO A LESSER CHARGE OF MANSLAUGHTER. STRANGULATION IS A RESULT OF CONTINOUS PRESSURE, SO HOW COULD IT BE AN ACCIDENT?. WAS THE JURY STUPID OR WHAT? I REMEMBER A JUROR SAYING THERE WASEN'T A CLEAR CUT PATH TO SHOW MURDER. WHAT MORE DID THEY WANT? BRUISING ALL OVER JENNIFER LEVIN'S BODY, STRANGULATION MARKS, PROVING SHE WAS BEATED AND STRANGLED.
