Quotes

Rob Tyler: [Rob is at the pulpit speaking to the congregation. On the frong row is Jill, Catherine, Barbara, Eric, and Henry] A few months ago I preached a sermon to you about love. And I said, "Even when times seem difficult, have faith and love." This morning, home again with my family, and among those that we love and love us, that's what I was going to tell you again. Implying that those who have faith live happily or at least happier ever after. But I want to confess to you, here today, that my faith ...

Understanding here requires true caring
19 March 1999 | by (Lombard, Illinois (Chicago suburb)) – See all my reviews

This movie, this EPIC drama is the absolute essence of harsh reality child abuse captured on film. However, thankfully, the audience is not subjected to visual monstrosities, instead to the brutal repercussions, horrible effects on the child's mind. Movies like this one, which was written and produced with "eyes wide open" if you get my meaning, are of course under-appreciated and naturally unpopular because it is extremely emotionally intense. This film deals directly with and delivers the raw, pure evil that can so easily be created and begotten simply by other evil-- what and who children become of being brutally abused, alienated, neglected. I've seen this film twice within five years and both times cried during several parts and bawled after the end... for I can only and completely feel the outrage and true crime of what psychosis does to children, hence deep sadness of the reality of what people are and do. So, obviously, FAINTHEARTED & EMOTIONAL -BEWARE. One important thing though! This movie is not a complete depressant and downer. It teaches the lesson of hope and the power of love as Catherine and her brother are luckily sent to live and grow up with a caring, loving Christian family who doesn't give up on them when Cat's rage emerges with a passion and helps her deal with and heal her severely disturbed mind. That part of the story was mostly unrealistic, but beneficial and justified. It gave us what we wanted to see-- a basically good ending. All in all? This movie is awesome in the serious issues department. Thorough, informative, heart-wrenching, fairly realistic, profound and IMPORTANT. The main cast did a great job, *especially* and foremost Ashley Peldon (Cat). It will either frustrate, anger and sadden you and/or inspire you to help kids & be part of the solution, not the problem. This film deserves an award. Thank you. (Yes, I'm *finally* DONE! wHeW) =+)
