When Tom meets Danny in the house where the killing occurred, Danny points a semi-automatic pistol at Tom. In the views facing Danny the pistol is ready to fire but in the views from behind, the pistol's slide is locked back. See more »


Tom Seymour: [reading from his book] It's the stories, the stories children tell themselves, after the event or the act. That's what we work with. Not to punish or accuse, but to help them retell their stories in a way that gives them hope, possibility, and a future. Because if you don't believe a child has a future, then why believe in anything?

Terrible, terrible film
3 October 2017 | by paulandbooSee all my reviews

Possibly the worst film ever made. Poor plot, poor script and unrealistic characters and behaviours. Avoid. The fact that I have to write five lines about this drivel offends me, but if it means that someone else doesn't waste 90 minutes of their life watching it then I guess it is worth it.
