I think I was expecting too much from this one. I've heard so many good things that I really had high expectations--not to say it wasn't great. I really enjoyed it, just not as much as I thought.

I thought Donnelly did a fantastic job at portraying life in the early 1900s in upstate NY, it was raw and real. The backdrop of the famous murder was also a great idea, though I thought it would be more in the forefront of the narrative.
