Very good film.
12 February 2018 | by TonySee all my reviews

Another fact based real life horror, a story that reveals the truly awful story of one case in many. The institution that preaches right and wrong, trying it's damnedest to cover up the sins of it's own. In this case as others justice / right was only served after the church hushed previous crimes up, then compounded the crime with transfers to another diocese resulting in further victims. Of course we now frequently hear of other institutional sectors doing the same. As for the film, I actually rate HBO as the best film studio now. They maybe made for TV, but they seem to gather great acting casts, good directors and good production. They combine this with serious stories or good storytelling, rather than another comic book story overloaded and dependant on CGI. Well worth watching, will shock / anger and make you think how these things can happen.
