'Under the Bridge' review: Teens are cruel in Hulu's true crime drama 

Hulu's "Under the Bridge," based on Rebecca Godfrey's 2005 true-crime novel, depicts childhood innocence lost to violence, deception, and tragedy.   

The tragedy of Reena Virk, a 14-year-old Canadian girl who was murdered by her friends in 1997, is a terrifying tale of youngsters harming each other and performing the ultimate act of cruelty and violence for reasons we'll never understand.  

In its fictitious version, "Under the Bridge" (streaming Thursdays, ★★ out of four) is an emotive drama that avoids true crime cliches.  

However, its second half progressively unravels, raising more concerns than it answers and opening too many new threads while leaving most of them hanging.  

Its eight episodes try for lofty, urgent storytelling, but only the first four move you.Sad because so much of this tale needs to be heard..  

Unhappy teenager Reena (Vritika Gupta) hates her Jehovah's Witness mother Suman (Archie Panjabi) and doesn't fit in near her British Columbia town.  

After being drawn to LA street gang-obsessed girls, Reena attends a hostile party and is assaulted by youths under a bridge. However, her slain body is located days after she escapes that beating.  

Cam Bentland (Lily Gladstone), a local cop, suspects Reena's friends Josephine (Chloe Guidry), Dusty (Aiyana Goodfellow), and Kelly (Izzy G.) right away.
