HBO has released the first trailer for their upcoming true-crime documentary, “I Love You, Now Die: The Commonwealth vs. Michelle Carter,” and although there’s sparse footage, it’s chilling.
Directed by Erin Lee Carr (“Mommy Dead and Dearest”), the two-part documentary, which will debut at SXSW on March 9, dives deep into the texting suicide case that riveted the nation
Michelle Carter sent texts urging her boyfriend, Conrad Roy, to commit suicide. Carter, who was 17 years old at the time, was indicted as an adult.
The documentary raises difficult questions about technology, mental health, and whether or not a teenager can be held responsible for the suicide of another.
“I Love You, Now Die: The Commonwealth vs. Michelle Carter” will premiere this summer on HBO.
