You're so beautiful, baby doll. Thank ya, honey. Daddy's sexy girl. How's my baby doll's honey pot? I know you'll love me, Jackson.
What in the hell are you doing? Jesus Christ Jeremiah, what's gotten into you? Did your mother put you up to this? Is she home early? Sarah!

Downright depressing. I watch films to escape or to see the joyousness of life - basically this is about child abuse. We all know what that is
and the adults who do it are downright ILL. For that reason, this
film is brilliant and depicts the mental illness in adults very well - and their inability to connect with their own compassion and understanding. Makes you realise that just because a person can have a child, doesn't mean they are a parent. Throws up the whole notion of family and how damaging it is for some people.
If anything this film could be used to force EVERYONE to take a parenting course and to be observed and examined in the action of parenting.
It was realistic - but sad, depressing and well, if you are in the mood of getting depressed, watch this one.
I was really wanting to see what the kid turned into as an adult. Just another junkie?? It leaves you dissatisfied completely in that respect.
