Ellen Barkin as a detective was exceptional as usual. Ellen gave one of her best performances along with Peta Wilson and Julian Sands, the doctor with many hang ups.
There was a great moral in this picture, that child abuse causes great heart break and hardships for men and women that lasts their entire life time. "MERCY" presented an excellent movie about the mental hang-ups caused by family members to each other. Sexual abuse should be reported immediately no matter who the person IS in life.
