Very interesting look on brainwashing cults...
12 April 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This documentary is about teenage runaways or more precisely runaways from very disturbing sect led by their leader Warren Jeffs. The sect is called Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints(FLDS Church)and probably one of the most fundamentalistic mormon groups.

FLDS Church owns lots of land, and controls their members with iron fist. Polygamy is encouraged by Jeffs, also the use of childbrides between older men and teenage girls. Sexual abuse, mistreatment etc seems to be common in this organization and according to what police and FBI found out later Jeffs was one of the biggest perpetrators of these crimes.

This doc however doesn't solely focus on these serious matters but shows the teenagers and families that escaped this very dangerous sect and tries to adjust to normal life. But this however seems harder then one might think.

How to enjoy freedom when you never had any freedom before? And as the filmmakers follow these kids around you get the feeling that their real problems starts AFTER they escaped the sect.

This doc is well-made and should be seen by anyone who liked Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple (2006), Jesus Camp (2006)etc.

Religious fanaticism shows it's ugly face regardless if you are Christian,Muslim, hindu etc and therefore docs like this one is so important.
