What happens when one of the world's most famous directors becomes trapped inside one of his own movies? This is a fascinating look at the public scandal and private tragedy that led to the legendary director's sudden flight from the US after his conviction for unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor in 1977. The documentary reopens the complex and still-controversial case 30 years later, challenging many of the myths that have built up around it, while exploring the circumstances that led up to his conviction, as well as the media circus that followed. Broadcast as part of ABC's Sunday Best.
