thanks
18 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Michael Ontkean made a number of bad movies after The Rookies (tv series). This is not one of them.

As an incest survivor I am grateful for any movie that talks about child abuse without using the children in a prurient way -- as Larry Clark does. This is an appropriately-acted movie that shows how truly rotten pedophiles are and how little the justice system cares. I wish that it had gotten some sort of public attention so that more of the ignorant world would wake up.
