Maryville, Missouri made national news in the fall of 2013 under unfortunate circumstances: Daisy Coleman, a high school freshman, claimed she was raped at a party by an older football player, and the entire thing had been filmed. The case drew media attention from a country that wanted to know: Had we learned from Steubenville? Could a small town handle a rape case with the sensitivity and nuance required?
Unfortunately, not much progress was made. Coleman’s allegation set off a campaign of harassment against her in her hometown, sparked a potential conflict of interest on the part of the county prosecutor, and, eventually, led to a call to action from Anonymous.
Fast forward to 2016, where Netflix is releasing a documentary called Audrie & Daisy that examines what happens to teenagers when cases like these surface. The film tracks Daisy’s story along with that of Audrie Pott, a California teen who underwent a similar ordeal and killed herself weeks later.
Netflix released its first trailer for the film Monday.
The film will premiere both on the streaming service and in theaters Sept. 23.
