The Face of the Angel is itself inspired by the real-life case of Amanda Knox. The crime and trial continue to be hugely controversial, but Michael Winterbottom sensitively avoids sensationalism. Instead, as the film sees Thomas drawn into the conspiracy theories surrounding the murder and grows close to a young British woman (Cara Delevingne) living in the city, the film emerges as a gripping study of the responsibilities of storytellers to the truth and to their subjects.
