Daniel Hugh Kelly,
Based on real-life events in Canada in the late 1980's, social worker Paula Jackson investigated a commune run by a messiah-like figure who referred to himself as Moses. Jackson's findings uncovered disturbing mental and physical abuses of this cult's members by its maniacal leader. Soon, Jackson found herself fighting to save Moses's followers. Written by
An excellent, thought provoking film. Well acted throughout, disturbing at times, you feel for the characters. The theme of spousal/partner abuse is primary here, and I do not believe I have ever seen a better description of the "battered spouse" syndrome on film.
While this movie obviously didn't have a 50 million dollar budget, the results do not suffer. Brilliant and highly recommended.
