Raising Adam Lanza
After the shooting in Newtown, Conn. that left 27 people dead, almost all of them children, there were more questions than answers. To understand what happened, FRONTLINE teamed up with the Hartford Courant to investigate the life of the shooter, Adam Lanza, and the mother who raised him.
“Bravo to FRONTLINE for making my brain bigger,” tweeted Michelle Edmonds, from Little Rock, Ark., who called the film “mesmerizing.”
“Objective and fair reporting — appreciated the absence of sensationalism, angling to blame someone or something — well done,” Kerrie Thompson, another viewer, tweeted.
