On the afternoon of July 26, 2009, Diane Schuler drove the wrong way on the Taconic State Parkway in New York for nearly two miles, eventually smashing into an oncoming SUV and killing herself, her daughter, three nieces, and all three people in the other car. Only her five-year-old son survived. Diane’s autopsy revealed that she had consumed the equivalent of 10 shots of vodka, and had smoked marijuana, shortly before the accident. Yet by all accounts, Diane had no history of substance abuse or psychological problems, and was generally known to be a loving and stable wife and mother.

In There’s Something Wrong with Aunt Diane, award-winning director Liz Garbus (see below) explores the facts and speculation surrounding this tragic accident. The film follows Diane’s husband and sister-in-law, who believe that Diane may have had a medical emergency that precipitated the crash, and who hire a lawyer and PI to investigate that angle. Piecing together a minute-by minute retelling of the fateful day, along with interviews with Diane’s family and friends, victims’ families, eyewitnesses, investigators, and medical and psychiatric experts, this feature-length film reveals a complex and complicated case that has left all those involved still wondering what really happened to Aunt Diane.

    Comments about this product:

    I bought this for it's informative value about an accident and story that I remember so well...I was not one bit disappointed with the quality and the information set forth. Obviously more questions are left unanswered than are answered, but that is the nature of a tragedy of this magnitude. It was just comforting to get acquainted with those involved and all those affected by such a terrible tragedy. Wouldn't mind a follow up to see how the families are today.

        Comments about this product:

        There is more left unsaid and unexplained than what is said and explained. Why did the husband put the opened bottle of vodka in her car? How could she possibly have consumed the equivalent of ten shots of vodka IN THE CAR?
        The husband seems to be tight lipped about everything. Didn't he know she smoked M? Drank occasionally?? IMO this was not a happy marriage.

          This is an excellent look at the sad tradegy of alcoholism and the family's extensive denial system. For anyone that has ever taken a drink and drove a car - this should stop you in your tracks!

              Did not learn much that wasn't covered in the media. Wish they would have at least tried to explain how/where she could have spent so much time and not traveled very far. Were there McDonalds surveillance tapes we didn't see? Also, showing the picture of Diane dead at the scene was not necessary.
