Synopsis

Leopold and Loeb, two homosexual lovers who murdered a 14 year old boy in 1924, are the subject of Tom Kalin's atmospheric black-and-white study of the relationship between the two killers, their crime and subsequent trial. The case served as the inspiration for two other films, Hitchcock's 'Rope' (1948) and Richard Fleischer's 'Compulsion' (1959).
