All the more powerful because it's true.
21 May 2019 | by dolive-578-564987See all my reviews

A superb film, meticulous in explaining how a pedophile operated, and how enablers in positions of high responsibility allowed him to victimize hundreds of people for about two decades. We see from this film what a blessing it is that courtroom trials are routinely videotaped for the historic record. The structure of the film is excellent, first introducing us at proper length to the joys of athleticism and the commitment required, and then how the predator won the trust a vulnerable population, culminating in the courtroom drama, the victim impact statements especially. In contrast to a perpetrator who was entirely self-interested and self-involved, this movie puts the victims front and center - it is their story. The picture does not overly advocate for them (the facts do that), it simply gives them a voice, after decades in which they were not listened to, or were not believed, or were not protected. Finally, it's a constructive report: We come away knowing pretty much exactly what we all must do - as individuals and institutions - to prevent future life-long injury to each other, in this case to one of the many acutely vulnerable groups in our community.
