Compelling take on scandalous church
10 December 2017 | by willandfergSee all my reviews

An interesting series that tries to create a personal story around the Catholic Church's paedophile scandal. I found that the series succeeds in compelling the viewer to feel for the victims in a way that media reports have failed to do. Although we are all disgusted by the behaviour of the priests and brothers in newspaper reports it takes a series like this to bring the full horror home to the public on an emotional level because we get involved with the children depicted. All acting was extraordinarily good and the writing was sound, despite the other reviewers criticism of it. I found each episode compelling viewing and recommend it to all.
