May’s pick was made by Lindsey Hansen.
"I love this film because I am a bit of a true crime junkie. I feel like this film just kind of sucks you in and doesn't let go. The suspense is present throughout the whole film. David Fincher executed this film beautifully, which is why I would love for people to get a chance to see it on a big screen if they weren't able to previously."
