Green Apple Entertainment released the crime mystery TV film Citizen Jane, starring Ally Sheedy (The Breakfast Club) and Sean Patrick Flanery ( Deadly Impact), on DVD on Aug. 23, 2011, for a list price of $26.98.

Based on a true story that dominated the headlines in the 1990s and the subsequent best-selling book by James Dalessandro, the movie tells the tale of Jane Alexander (Sheedy), who lives an enviable life in San Francisco with the handsome and slyly charismatic Tom O’Donnell ( Flanery ). But Jane’s idyllic life is shattered when her beloved, elderly aunt is brutally murdered.

Embarking on an epic, 13-year journey to track down the killer, Jane stuns authorities with her shrewdness and intelligence and ultimately brings her aunt’s killer to justice. In the process, she starts up the activist group Citizens Against Homicide, which supports families looking for justice.

Directed by Armand Mastroianni (The Celestine Prophecy) and first broadcast on the Hallmark Channel in 2009, Citizen Jane also stars Meat Loaf (The Rocky Horror Picture Show) and Nia Peeples (TV’s Pretty Little Liars).

The DVD doesn’t contain any bonus features.
