Product Description

Promising young attorney Shari Karney is breaking up under the stress of running her practice. She is neglecting her appearance and her boyfriend, and quarrels with her mother. When she becomes emotionally involved in a child abuse case and physically attacks a witness in court, it appears that she has finally gone over the edge. But whilst being helped by a friendly psychiatrist she comes to realise that her behaviour is the result of her father having abused her as a child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shattered Trust 9 Nov 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very good, well cast true life film about Shari, a Aviation lawyer who dabbles in women's issues cases on the side and is approached by a desperate social worker seeking legal Counsel to secure custody of a baby to a young couple accused wrongly of sexually abusing their three year old - now taken into care. In fact the child's father is the real abuser, not the accused couple trying to bring their little girl home. Reluctant to take the case, Shari eventually reads the file and is shocked at how a respectable little league coach could be so 'evil' behind the scenes - provided he is guilty of the crime he's accused. Shari takes the case and the bitter trial for temporary custody rakes up subliminal memories in Shari that may provide answers to why she is still sexually repressed and prefers to hide her femininity behind a plain unmade up face and frumpy but comfortable oversized baggy clothes. During the trial, Shari hears typing noises and the defendent possible abuser irritates Shari with such stark denial of the accusations she physically assaults him in the courtroom, which gets her into trouble. The judge forces her to seek psychiatric help or be disbarred. So she seeks help and during counselling she discovers through hypnosis that her father also sexually abused her. This sets Shari on the path to taking on more sexual abuse cases, dumping her aviation law career and taking more interest in herself and her appearance too. When, later on, she finds out that the same little girl is again being sexual abused (her father won the case, not the couple) and is now psychotic, Shari decides to take matters in hand and change the law.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding film 28 July 2014
Format:DVD
I didn't realize this was a true story, and what a film, absolutely brilliant, Melissa Gilbert is an outstanding actress, who has come along way since Little House on the Prairie, which my partner still watches, Melissa must have been exhausted after filming some of the scenes in this film, she actually assaults a witness, and ends up in the jail, the witness ended up being scared stiff of her!!
Her mother was a very cruel women, who treated her daughter terrible, and then it turns out her father her from when she was a baby, her sister who she was close to, would not believe her, Melissa Gilbert in the film ends up with herself setting a up a business bringing to justice for what they did to there father/son, in assaulting them, it wasn't easy to get this law applied in the US, because she interrupted the Senator when he was trying to get it passed.
Outstanding film, and actress, I wonder what the next film will be like, with her acting in it

This film was very good and in brilliant condition when it arrived. It was based on a true story and Melissa Gilbert played the lead role brilliantly about an attorney who finds out she was abused by her father .

5.0 out of 5 stars Good movie! 16 Feb 2011
By sparky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I believe I saw this one time on life time and couldn't get it out of my head. I went searching for a different movie and came up with a list of movies that I have been looking for. Thank goodness for the list that helped me find this movie again. Kate Nelligan is a wonderful actress just like in little house on the prairie.
