Ross from Friends directing a movie about child abuse, are you fucking kidding me? Oh, how I was wrong about him, because this turned out to be one of the best movies that I have seen in a last few months. Everything was perfect, from acting to the story, which was so disturbing and intense that I could feel almost all emotions that actors felt. After The American Crime (I guess Catherine Keener liked movies about child abuse) we have another fucked up movie about child abuse, but this time updated and very true. The level of research and phrases used in this movie is truly amazing, and I believe that this is more of a documentary than an actual film, because after seeing a few real documentaries about pedophilia and Internet hunting I noticed that almost nothing is changed to fit the narrative or altered in any other way. This movie does not follow the classic movie formula, but instead it follows life formula, showing us these events in true light. Oh yeah, and if I ever see Charlie (Chris Henry Coffey) in real life, I will punch him in the face.
