In the photographs, Elle Fanning as Carter is unrecognizable as she stands in the courtroom. Fanning appears to have the same dark brows and brushed-back blonde hair as Carter did in 2017.

The Girl From Plainville received a series order from Hulu in August 2020, thus the movie has been in the works for quite some time. This hopefully indicates that The Girl From Plainville will be ready for release in mid-2022.

The Girl From Plainville Plot

Conrad Roy and Michelle Carter began dating in 2012 after meeting in Florida. Though they only saw each other a few times over their two-year relationship, instead of speaking constantly via text, phone, and email.

As part of the police inquiry and court documents, their conversation would take up 317 pages. Roy and Carter both had mental health concerns, and Roy regularly discussed suicide; Carter often convinced him out of it, until the end of June 2014, when she altered her approach.

Instead, Carter began urging Roy to commit suicide and even recommended techniques he could employ, including the one he utilized. Roy was discovered dead in the parking lot of a Kmart on July 13, 2014.

According to the Esquire piece, Cater emailed her friend Samantha two months after Roy died: “I had the power to stop him.

I was on the phone with him at the time, and he got out of the car because it was functioning, and he became terrified, so I f***** urged him to get back in. I had the power to stop him, but I f****** didn’t. I just had one thing to say: I love you.”

In February 2015, she was charged with involuntary manslaughter, a crime punishable by up to 20 years in jail. She waived her right to a jury trial, allowing Judge Lawrence Moniz to make the final judgment. Carter was found guilty of negligent homicide and condemned to two and a half years in jail, but was later reduced to a 15-month term.

The series’ co-showrunners and executive producers are The Post writer Liz Hannah and Dr. Death executive producer Patrick McManus, with Jesse Barron, the author of the Esquire article on which the show is based, serving as a consulting producer.
