Netflix’ed last night: Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father (2008), a deeply upsetting documentary about the failure of the justice system. Filmmaker Kurt Kuenne explores the life and times of his childhood friend, Andrew Bagby, who was brutally murdered by an ex-girlfriend. When Kurt started the film it was to memorialize Andrew by talking to his friends and family—then the evil ex-gf reveals she’s pregnant with Andrew’s baby. His parents fight for custody … until the unthinkable happens.

See this—just not when you’re in the mood for a rom com.
