Rare instance!
28 April 2002 | by SnowyThingSee all my reviews

It is a rare treat that such a movie comes along that hits it hard right at home on such a real and common problem... abuse. I first caught this movie in High School shown to students in a Career and Life Management class. I was not only amazed at how great the movie was, but how real it seemed. To those that might not be aware of it, this movie was based on a 'real life event' that happened earlier on. After the movie, we were shown a short documentary titled 'Life After Billy'. It showed us how the survivors of the real incident are, and what they are doing. I highly recommend this movie to anyone that either lives with, or had lived through abuse.
