Prosecuting Casey Anthony – EW Review

Prosecuting Casey Anothony airs this Saturday on Lifetime at 8/7c, but EW already saw the movie and released this review: his terrifically creepy turn as crooked cop/murderer Drew Peterson in last year’s Lifetime movie, Rob Lowe is back with another ripped-from-the-headlines docudrama. This time he plays Assistant State Attorney Jeff Ashton, who failed to get a conviction in the Casey Anthony murder case. Lowe’s Ashton is sympathetic (”I don’t know what more I could have done,” he says during a posttrial interview), if a bit fame-hungry (he revels in being asked for an autograph). Even though you come away with no new insight into the case, the fine performances by Lowe, Revolution‘s Elizabeth Mitchell (as another prosecutor), and The Office‘s Oscar Nuñez (as Anthony’s lawyer) make this TV movie far more compelling than you’d expect.  A-
