Best HBO movie ever made
15 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"A Child Betrayed" changed my life. I know a lot of people who have had this experience. The movie was really realistic and the acting was so good I couldn't tear myself away. I especially liked the supporting cast (some child actors who really were phenomenal). The kid who played Kenny was the best. I think that the story is an important one to tell. I know this movie won some Emmys. It totally deserves them! The movie was touching. I recommend it to anyone interested in religion, acting, or kids. Not only did the movie report accurate events, but it did so in a really emotional way. Some shots were in-your-face intense. There is this one where the kid Kenny feels really sad because his friend is going to get molested, and there's this close up on him and he's really a good actor so it seems totally realistic. Everyone should see this movie!
