Makes you feel as if you are there
24 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The message of this movie is so authentic that it makes the viewer feel as if he or she is in the middle of the plot, regardless of whether or not that person is a pedophile. Very strong direction and acting results in achieved success. Annie Potts was simply amazing as the main character and the main message within the plot was conveyed very immediately, and the repetition of its point is far from annoying. We need more enticing movies such as this one. We should spread the lessons learned and apply them as well. This is a very serious and important issue which ought not be ignored. I have watched a lot of movies over the course of many years and few such as this one keep the viewer on the edge of the seat throughout.
