2015 Academy Award Shortlist, Best Foreign Language Film (from The Netherlands)


ACCUSED is a tense thriller is based on the true story of one of the biggest miscarriages of justice in Dutch history, the case of intensive care nurse Lucia de Berk, aka "The Angel of Death." When de Berk, a woman with a complicated past, is present at one inexplicable death too many, her hospital alerts the police.

Ambitious assistant district attorney Judith sees de Berk's case as an opportunity to make her career, so she pieces together a prosecution based largely on circumstantial evidence. Eventually, though, the real evidence starts troubling Judith, and she discovers inconsistencies in witness statements, even the suppression of lab evidence. But can she turn back the wheels of justice?

Running Time: 97 Minutes. Not Rated

PLEASE NOTE: ACCUSED is in Dutch with English Subtitles
