But then again it is Ava DuVernay directed, so that was all I needed to get sold. I knew I'd heard of Korey Wise before, too. And it is just... Sweet Lord! I think he had the worst of it, and all he did was want to stand by a friend.
You won't understand my "I shouldn't have watched" if you're not the parent--nay, mother--of a boy. This film was traumatic, and not for the sex abuse trigger alone. I damn near lost my mind watching it; can't count how many times I tossed my earpiece. 'Cause I mean, people went through that?? In real life! It is almost 3am out here and I am literally up reading up on the Central Park Jogger Case and all its related articles because, jeez!! Okay, maybe a quick run-through...
Naaah, forget it. I can't.
But I do hope that all the Linda Fairsteins and Elizabeth Lederers of the world burn here on earth before they even get to hell because, child...naaaah.
