Plot Summary: Reopening a case that has inspired curiosity, controversy, and confusion for over three decades, Marina Zenovich's film is an extensive exploration of the circumstances that led up to and the circus that followed Polanski's conviction for having unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. Zenovich had unprecedented access to several of the key players in the case, including the lawyers representing the case, the media covering it, and the unusually clear-eyed and candid victim. Unearthing a trove of telling footage from the past, and combining it with insightful interviews from today, she brings comprehension and clarity to events long clouded by myth and misconception. A thrilling examination of a trial that became the prototype for innumerable Hollywood courtroom scandals to follow, "Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired" becomes a brilliant discourse on the attraction/repulsion that defines celebrity culture in contemporary America.
