Teacher Rob Dekoster is a good man, albeit a bit too frivolous and liberal with funds the local arts center's interim director. His wife Nelle, who sometimes abuses drugs, spoils his ingrate teenage stepdaughter Sandy, who is kind only to her sweet, mentally handicapped brother, Jimmy Vandevyver. After a class on sexual abuse from feminist teacher Lydia De Beule, Sandy pretends Rob abused her. Lydia, Rob's ex, eagerly helps her fabricate 'proof', which a female police commissioner eagerly believes. A frustrated judge (and father) shamelessly ignores the legal benefit of the doubt, even tricks Rob while in jail. Nelle discovers more then one sick truth. Written by KGF Vissers

Almost a TV movie!!!
28 August 2006 | by michou580See all my reviews

I just went out from the screening of SUSPECT at the world film festival of Montreal. I choose this film because i have a hole in my schedule. So i didn't know exactly what it was about. That's why i didn't hate it, but this movie was a little bit too corny ( specially the scene of the mother who cry with the tacky music). Anyway, the plot of the young teenager who accuse the stepfather of sexual abuse is interesting. A good start with an honest cast who deliver pretty well the emotions. Sadly after 45 mins the story fell with a few cliché and slow down a little bit. If you don't mind about a little touch of TV movie than you'll probably like it, but in the other hand if you search the buried treasure of the 7th art, STAY AWAY.
