Fine Exploration of a Very Difficult Subject
31 May 2018 | by david-greene5See all my reviews

This film is an important, serious treatment of the all-too-prevalent subject of child sexual abuse. It will require close concentration by the viewer as it works its way into the heart of a repressed memory. All the performances were spot-on perfect. Particularly noteworthy is the poignant, striking, brief performance. by John Heard.
