Chilling depiction of the "blame the victim" tactic
16 July 2001 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This unusually frank Canadian TV-movie showcases one of the less touted aspects of incest, the parental practice of turning the kids against each other to make the victim(s) less credible. As the 11-year-old who finally speaks up against her father's sexual abuse, Vanessa King plays a believably angry, sometimes less than likable kid whose father has manipulated her entire character. Her imaginative nature has gained her a reputation as a liar, and parent-fostered sibling rivalry casts the girl as a bully to her younger brother and sister, so that, when she testifies against her father, her entire family turns against her and even the prosecutor doubts her story. This movie is one of the few depictions of incest to show the parallel to adult rape cases: blaming the victim, even when the victim is a child. Highly recommended.
