Borderline | Chicago Reader


This documentary by Slawomir Grunberg examines the case against Eunice Baker, a borderline retarded woman in Owego, New York, who signed a questionable confession and was convicted of murder in 2000 after a malfunctioning furnace killed a three-year-old girl she was babysitting. Grunberg wants to exonerate Baker, but his agenda is almost upstaged by her mother, Debra Brown, who claims to suffer from multiple personality disorder and delivers such polished sound bites as “When people are poor they suffer, and when they suffer they look for someone to blame.” In February 2004 a court reduced Baker's charge from murder to criminally negligent homicide and released her. 57 min.
