Writing on trial

The case of this article ("Amanda Knox murder movie producers on the defensive" in 24 hours Vancouver on January 12, 2011) has been brought before me. First, the writer is charged with gross negligence in the absence of hyphens from 21-year-old's. Next,

there is disorder in the court as I can't make sense of is adamant the picture won't have impact the ongoing legal proceedings. I think the writer should have jettisoned have. Finally,

here is the article's photo caption, and, as the first image above shows, there is no The in the movie's title. Addendum: 24 hours Vancouver should really do something about movie titles never being italicized in photo captions.
