Storyline

A woman experiences strange feelings and fleeting memories about her childhood after the birth of her first child. She seeks help from her estranged sister and realizes these memories connect to the childhood sexual abuse that the sister endured. The woman's marriage and family life begin to deteriorate, along with the once close relationship she enjoyed with her father. Eventually, she realizes that she too was abused. After facing the truth, she realizes that her brother's young daughter is often left in the care of "grandpa" and is also being abused. With the typical resistance of family members to deal with the proof, the adult children finally face their very prominent father and their distant mother, ending her denial. With both guilt and courage they band together and prosecute their father for the sexual abuse of his granddaughter. This is an above average movie about the insidious nature of childhood sexual abuse, being passed from generation to generation. Though, the ...

Well done
30 September 2003 | by scalla94See all my reviews

After reading a rather rabid comment on this movie I feel compelled to write my recommendation. This movie is well written and performed. Unfortunately these things do happen as described in the film and I could not think of a better way to portray them than was done here by the sensitive performances of all involved. Especially Dina Merrills' role as a wife and mother so steeped in denial that you know she will go to her deathbed without ever getting real. Frustrating to watch and unimaginable to think of actually living through. This movie has a tough subject that I am sure was no picnic for the cast but I believe they did some good here.
