Sensitive subject handled very well
21 November 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This short feature deals with the sensitive subject of molestation, and handles it well. In the story, Karen, a teenager, babysits a six-year old girl named Molly, and starts to notice certain behaviors in Molly that cause Karen suspicion that the child is being molested. Karen's suspicions come about when her own memories are brought to the surface about being molested by her uncle as a child. She is desperate to protect Molly, who keeps quiet about what her parents' friend is doing to her, at his gentle prompting when he is alone with Molly. When a situation arises that will put Molly in more danger, Karen quickly comes up with a plan to bring the truth out in the open and expose what the family friend is doing.

I felt the subject matter was handled very well and keeps everything "clean", which makes this more an educational tool than a grueling drama on sexual abuse.
