The film is not based on true events.
The Marcus Corporation, a theater chain in Wisconsin, decided it won’t show the film at several locations in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties out of respect for the girls’ families and others who were affected by the case.
Teens are committed to mental institution
After lengthy court procedures, both teens accused in the 2014 stabbing were sent to mental hospitals.
As part of the agreement, under Wisconsin law, a judge found her not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect, meaning she will ultimately not be held criminally responsible for the attack.
Last year, Weier pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree homicide due to mental illness or defect as part of a similar plea agreement stipulating she would accept commitment to institutional care. A judge ordered her to spend 25 year in a mental health facility in December.
CNN does not typically name minors charged with crimes, but it makes exceptions if they are charged — as were Geyser and Weier — as an adult.
