Sophie: A Murder in West Cork

Source: Deadline

Unresolved homicides have a powerful and compelling impact on public awareness. Nobody wants to believe that existing law enforcement agencies are incapable of apprehending society’s worst, most inventive, and skilled criminals. That is, we are fascinated by these tragedies because they contradict one of our most basic needs, namely the safety of our families. The murder of 39-year-old French filmmaker Sophie Toscane du Plantier in West Cork two days before Noel in 1996 shocked both countries and triggered a still-unresolved investigation.

The three-part crime series will focus on a documentary on crime and investigation that has focused for decades on journalist Ian Bailey. He was even tried and convicted in France, but he is still free in Ireland. It’s unclear what new information will be revealed by the Netflix series, but Toscan du Plantier is likely to be sympathetic because it’s said to be the first documentary produced with the victim’s family’s blessing. The following is the next real crime streaming event that we are aware of.

Release date of “Sophie : A Murder on West Cork”

According to Irish Central, Netflix has stated that the new documentary will be released in the autumn of 2020. The company announced the release of “Sophie: A Murder in West Corc” on May 19th (via Deadline). This is only the most recent on-screen attempt to convey the agony of death and its consequences. According to CorkBEO, the project follows another documentary on the same subject produced by Academy Award nominee Jim Sheridan (“My Left Foot,” “In The Father’s Name”) for Sky Crime and Now TV. It is unclear whether this series, which appears to focus on a number of suspects, will be shown more widely in the future. Viewers will be interested to see how it compares to the Netflix version, which will almost certainly be more widely available. According to Finances Online, Netflix has over 200 million subscribers in over 190 countries.
