• "CHARLIE SAYS is absorbing ... it has the distinction of bringing a female gaze to arguably the most notorious crime spree in American history."
  • "What makes CHARLIE SAYS so original is its perspective and its willingness to depict the banality and absurdity of life with Manson rather than simply to portray him as the quintessence of evil."
  • "This is an innovative, occasionally provocative ... one whose perspectives on guilt and victimhood offer a new angle on a notorious case."

Years after the shocking murders that made the name Charles Manson synonymous with pure evil, the three women who killed for him—Leslie Van Houten (Hannah Murray), Patricia Krenwinkel (Sosie Bacon), and Susan Atkins (Marianne Rendón)—remain under the spell of the infamous cult leader (Matt Smith). Confined to an isolated cellblock in a California penitentiary, the trio seem destined to live out the rest of their lives under the delusion that their crimes were part of a cosmic plan—until empathetic graduate student Karlene Faith (Merritt Wever) is enlisted to rehabilitate them. Convinced the prisoners are not the inhuman monsters the world believes them to be, Karlene begins the arduous process of breaking down the psychological barriers erected by Manson. But are the women ready to confront the horror of what they did? Boundary pushing auteur Mary Harron (AMERICAN PSYCHO, I SHOT ANDY WARHOL) presents a provocative new perspective on one of the most notorious crimes of the 20th century.
