Watch: Trailer for Follow-Up Doc 'Roman Polanski: Odd Man Out'
In 2008, director Marina Zenovich turned the lens on director Roman Polanski and the 1977 statutory rape case that is brought up whenever the filmmaker is discussed. Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired showed some of the unsavory details of the case that may have treated Polanski unfairly in his legal struggles, but it is believed that the film made him more of a target. Now Roman Polanski: Odd Man Out tries to determine why Switzerland's government decided to arrest Polanski and threaten extradition to the US after leaving him alone for so long. The film sounds provoking, but the discussion just seems tired.
Here's the trailer for Marina Zenovich's Roman Polanski: Odd Man Out originally from Yahoo:
Emmy winning director Marina Zenovich, who also serves as narrator, explores the bizarre clash of politics, celebrity justice and the media as she sheds new light on the infamous saga of director Roman Polanski’s sexual abuse case and his escape from Swiss house arrest. A follow-up to the Emmy-winning documentary Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired, focusing on the filmmaker's successful battle to avoid extradition from Switzerland into the United States back in 2010. The film premieres on Showtime sometime this year.
