A Lifetime movie that filmed in the Charleston area back in May will make its world premiere on the network on Sunday, September 23rd at 8 pm. Conrad & Michelle: If Words Could Kill is based on the true story behind the turbulent and tragic teen romance of Michelle Carter and Conrad Roy.
The pair made headlines when Carter was charged with involuntary manslaughter after she allegedly encouraged Roy’s 2014 suicide through text messages. Actress and singer Bella Thorne stars as Carter, while actor Austin P. Mckenzie plays Roy. Lifetime describes the plot of the movie as follows:
“During a family vacation, Conrad, a loner with social anxiety, finds solace with Michelle, who has issues of her own. Both with suicidal tendencies, they turn to each other for support. Despite living in nearby cities, the two communicate mainly via text messages, sharing a toxic relationship of dependency. But when Conrad expresses his desire to end his life to escape his sadness this time, instead of trying to stop him as she had previously, Michelle encourages Conrad to take his life, even providing him suggestions on how to do it. Conrad tragically carries through with his plan, leading the nation to question the power of technology and if texting can be blamed for suicide. Ultimately, the judge hands down a guilty verdict, a first of its kind in which someone is convicted of manslaughter for using his or her words.”
The movie is one of the latest productions to film in the Holy City, which has become a popular spot for both TV and cinema projects. Other productions that have called the Charleston area home include The Righteous Gemstones, Salvage, Mr. Mercedes, Halloween, Top Chef, Vice Principals, Southern Charm, Naked, Leavey, The Inspectors, The Sinner, Reckless, and South of Hell.
