Goofs

Despite the statement at the film's end, Sybil's artwork was never hidden away and only rediscovered after her death. Though never successful as an artist during her lifetime, for many years she had small exhibits of her work in local galleries under her real name of Shirley A. Mason, and she frequently painted commissioned works for friends. These include some of the pieces reproduced at the end of the film. See more »

The evil that man do
20 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

I always thought that the scariest things in the world, among everything shown in terror movies, were not monsters, supernatural, or things like that. It's people, and all the terrible things that they can do to each other. And the everlasting scars that are left, so hard to heal. That's what comes to my mind, after a short reflection. How much of the story is real, we may never know. It's highly controversial, and it seems that all the people involved are not around anymore. But it doesn't really matter. Even considering this history as a fiction, it looks frightfully real, because it brings us the memory of so many people whose minds and lives have been shattered through child abuse. On the other hand, it does remind us of the amazing difference that a single person who care can do. Anyway, it's a great and touching movie, with a nice production and great acting. Certainly worth a close look!
