Need more movies like this
15 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't believe all of the negative comments I have read. We need more movies about this subject and this one is quite realistic as far as how birth and another events trigger memories of sexual abuse. I can only guess that these comments come from people who are completely ignorant about the epidemic of childhood sexual abuse or too uncomfortable to face it. For those of us who have lived through this nightmare, it is validating to see the issue addressed. It sounds like some here would like to see the good old days return; where no one spoke about abuse. Childhood sexual abuse is at the root of so many problems in our society that you would be shocked, if you weren't so busy hanging on to beliefs that make you comfy.
