Highly recommend this movie for an insight into domestic violence, 10 April 2006
Author: bnavratil from United States

I teach an 8th grade health class. One of the units we do is on abuse, including domestic violence. I show this movie to my students during that unit, as they are able to see how the abuse not only affects the victim, and the lengths the abuser will go to, to achieve their goals, but the students also see how the abuse affects the children in the family. The movie also depicts how others in society (family, friends, law officials, the court systems) approach the topic of abuse/domestic violence. My students thoroughly enjoy this movie, gaining terrific insight into abuse. It is very much true-to-life, and it was as a result of this case that domestic violence laws were enacted. I highly recommend this movie for all ages.
