Last July, Karla Homolka was released from prison after serving twelve years for
several killings in Southwestern Ontario. A movie based on Homolka and her husband, Paul Bernardo, was filmed in 2004.
Canada, however, has been less than receptive of Karla
. Christal Films in Montreal acquired distribution
rights, but at least one TV station has stopped running ads for the film, despite the insistence of the filmmakers, who
claim the movie is not exploitative and owes much to the film Monster
. That doesn't exactly make me want to run out and
see it, but I see their point. Canadians were so against the film, in fact, that it was forced to shoot in Los Angeles.
There is currently no distributor for the film in the US. If your lifelong dream was to see "Donna" from
That '70s Show
play a Canadian serial killer, you may have to work a lot harder to follow that
