Trama del film:

Moisés Kaufman and members of New York's Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie, Wyoming after the murder of Matthew Shepard. This is a film version of the play they wrote based on more than 200 interviews they conducted in Laramie. It follows and in some cases re-enacts the chronology of Shepard's visit to a local bar, his kidnap and beating, the discovery of him tied to a fence, the vigil at the hospital, his death and funeral, and the trial of his killers. It mixes real news reports with actors portraying friends, family, cops, killers, and other Laramie residents in their own words. It concludes with a Laramie staging of "Angels in America" a year after Shephard's death. Written by <[email protected]>

    Matthew Shepard was about two months short of his twenty-second birth
    when he was robbed, beaten, tied to a fence post and left to die in a
    rural area of Wyoming. The man who found him at first thought he was a
    scarecrow. Rushed to Poudre Valley Hospital at Fort Collins, he died on
    12 October 1998–and when Russell Henderson and Aaron McKinney were
    arrested for the crime they resorted to a defense known as "gay panic."
    Matthew Shepherd had propositioned them, they said, and they were so
    horrified that they killed him in response.

    The gay community and numerous civil rights watchdog groups were
    outraged by the defense, and as more and more facts came to light it
    seemed that the crime was somewhat more complicated than Henderson and
    McKinney wanted the public to know. Witnesses stated that Henderson and
    McKinney had specifically targeted Shepherd because he was gay. After
    much legal wrangling, Henderson pled guilty and testified against
    McKinney, who was convicted; after still more legal wrangling, and at
    the request of Shepherd's parents, McKinney escaped the death penalty
    but has no chance of parole.

    The case made headlines from end of the United States to the other and
    prompted numerous calls for Hate Crimes legislation, which had long
    been stalled both at the state and federal level. And in the midst of
    the confusion, chaos, and controversy, Moises Kaufman and the members
    of The Tectonic Theatre Project arrived on the scene, interviewing more
    than two hundred people about their thoughts and feelings on the case.
    These were shaped into THE LARAMIE PROJECT, a drama that debuted in
    2000 and which has since shocked, impressed, and deeply moved audiences
    from coast to coast.

    On the stage, THE LARAMIE PROJECT is played by eight performers who
    enact the numerous interview subjects in a three act, three hour
    performance on a largely bare stage. When filmed by HBO in 2002, it was
    reduced in length by about half and each interview subject was
    performed by a different actor–some of them members of the Techtonic
    Theatre Project, some of them well-known actors such as Laura Linney
    and Peter Fonda. The result is indeed powerful… but not as effective
    as the stage version, for on film it tends be a series of readings by
    "talking heads," a sort of pseudo-documentary, rather than as a
    cohesive whole.

    That said, the great difference between the film and the original
    script is one of balance. On stage, THE LARAMIE PROJECT takes no sides
    per se; it simply sets forth the words and allows the audience to
    judge. On screen, it is distinctly slanted, cutting much of the
    commentary that gave the original such remarkable balance. Even so, and
    although far outstripped by the stage version, it is a powerful voice
    for equality, tolerance, and simple human decency. Recommended.
