V.I.P.
Synopsis:

In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were arrested and later convicted of raping a white woman in New York City's Central Park. They spent between 6 and 13 years in prison before a serial rapist confessed that he alone had committed the crime, leading to their convictions being overturned. Set against a backdrop of a decaying city beset by violence and racial tension, THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE tells the story of that horrific crime, the rush to judgment by the police, a media clamoring for sensational stories and an outraged public, and the five lives upended by this miscarriage of justice
I had never come across this story and probably would not have done but this sounds like a film that sounds interesting and a story that needs to be told. Racial discrimination is as alive today as it was thirty years ago and I personally think it should not be forgotten.

This is the trailer:
