Describes most of my life.

Very disturbing. Hard to watch. But makes such an impact on the heart. Definitely not a movie most people would want to see. But, also a good view of what life is really like for some.

Disturbing as hell. Kudos to Jena Malone for coming out of this one a seemingly well-adjusted adult.

sad, depressing, disturbing and often hard to handle. this is a look at the harsh realities of how pathetic and abusive trashy excuses for human beings can disguise themselves as good husbands and fathers. some scenes here were just truly tough, especially around the end. all around great performances and excellent direction by angelica huston, whom i find surprising to be directing a film of this caliber and subject matter. a depressing and disturbing picture that truly succeeds as a realistic portrayal of the sad domestic realities faced even to this day in the world

Jena Malone, a child at the time of filming, out-performed everyone else in the film. Good story, though sad and disturbing.

this movie is so well done but not for the weak hearted. the little girl bone does one of the best performances i have seen for what gets done to her in this movie all in all very well done

The stars are all for Jena, she is brilliant in this. Incredibly hard to watch film, very graphic and real portrayal of child abuse. Heartbreaking.

This movie kept me at the edge of my seat... I get into certain movies for it's story and theme, and this is one of them. Anjelica Huston refrained from censoring anything about this movie.. which shows the true horror of incest and violence.. The only thing that bothered me a little about this film is that it could have been done in a more creative way.
