New Documentary Explores Lorena Bobbitt Case

A new documentary series from “Get Out” director Jordan Peele explores one of the most infamous news stories of the ’90s from a new perspective. “Lorena” recounts the story of Lorena Bobbitt, who famously cut off her husband’s penis in 1993 after enduring years of abuse and sexual assault. The four-part Amazon series also explores the way the media handled the story at the time, with Bobbitt becoming a national punch line despite the serious nature of her abuse. You’ll even see footage of people like Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose, who have dealt with their own #MeToo reckoning in recent years.
