An IQ of 168 did not keep McKinney out of trouble. In 1977, she became a tabloid sensation for supposedly raping and kidnapping Kirk Anderson, a mormon missionary. The trailer above is for Tabloid, a documentary about the “the Mormon sex in chains case” by documentarian Errol Morris (Fog of War). McKinney describes why the rape charge is absurd, comparing it to sticking a marshmallow into a parking meter. That just became my favorite analogy of the day, possibly the month. Things only get crazier from there.
It’s a fun, slick trailer that kept my attention without spoiling too much. If you’re looking for break from monsters and superheroes this summer – though I’m not sure why you would be – and the reviews are good, I’d bring your paparazzi camera over to theaters July 15th. Check out the poster below.
