A good look at reality
17 October 2002 | by asherjdoakSee all my reviews

This is a really good movie. I was really torn up over the fact that not only did this girl's father abuse her but also that nobody believed her, with the exception of the girl's teacher, the social worker and the little brother, who was also abused, as well as the oldest sister, as we soon found out. Nobody deserves to be treated that way by anybody, especially a parent. The worst thing about this is that this terrible crime is getting way too far out of control and the justice system always seems to take the culprit's side. I think I speak for abused children everywhere when I say that this has to be stopped because at this rate, every child on the planet will be a victim of either abuse or murder or God knows what else by the end of the decade.
