A heavy, heavy film... it will linger long in my memory.
on 21 September 2014
I've just watched this film with a room full of people. When the credits started at the end, no-one spoke. Then we started talking and half an hour was gone, probably much more.
This is a really good film, so thoughtful and provocative, but hampered by the fact that most of the incidental characters are drawn like sitcom tropes.
If you have any interest in theology or religion this film will blow your mind. If you have none, I'm guessing it might be a bit heavy, both in its darkness and its thoughtfulness.
The film deals with so much it's impossible to outline the many themes, but the central question is whether/when forgiveness is an appropriate response to child abuse.
