As a father to a teenage girl, and one soon to become one, this movie was hard to watch. Took me 3 days to finish it, it was simply to horrifying and disgusting to witness how those sick bastards do their thing.
Now when that is said, I really value this movie. It is important and necessary. It is an eye-opener to all 'tweenie' and teen parents.
This movie should be mandatory in the treatment of pedophiles, to make them realize what they really are doing to their victims.
Finally I'd like to give full credit to the cast for outstanding acting, and to David Schwimmer for his courage to make this film. You did a good job David!
