    Interesting and well though out movie about such a disgusting, ongoing, cover up by the church.

    Amazing that in this day and ages the rapists aren't gaoled and simply moved to another parish.

    Taut, succinct and well executed. The ending is both moving and satisfying. 1 year 11 months ago

    It was difficult for me to pinpoint why, exactly, I found this film unsatisfying. I think it ultimately came down to the fact that this film was almost entirely plot. There isn't much characterization, what there is is rather cliched and hollywoodish. I did find the story compelling and necessary, and the larger themes of a community being complicit in evil were well explored. I think what it really came down to was that there was no need to turn this into a drama: this should have been a documentary. The actors and script really didn't add anything to the plot, in my opinion. 1 year 9 months ago
