Corporal punishment scenes.
31 October 2000 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Although I found it an extremely interesting story line, I found the corporal punishment scenes rather disturbing, I definitely found them to be very graphic and may I say a little over the top. I am anti corporal punishment and I think that anyone with like views would therefore find this film rather disturbing.
