Watching a movie which is fictionalized account of the Leopold and Loeb murder trial. In 1924, they kidnapped and murdered a child to demonstrate their superior intellects attempting to commit the perfect crime. The facts of the move are pretty consistent with the reality, including how Leopold was an ornithologist and found the first Kirtland;s Warbler in Chicago in half a century, also that he led birding classes in the Hegewisch area.
It was very interesting, filling in hypothetical aspects of their lives, compared to the documentary about them a few days earlier.
