Excellent Sleeper Sep 18, 2008
I think this movie was a bit of a 'sleeper' with not enough advertising. It should have been a top-grossing movie.
Kevin Bacon plays a man who was just released from prison. He was in prison for child molestation.
Now, you probably think, 'oh, cool, someone is going to kill him for revenge' or something like that.
You couldn't be further from the truth. This movie doesn't have any answers, but it does make you sympathize, as much as possible for a 'normal' person, with what the main character is going through to 'fight' his urges.
I never would have believed that a movie could make me sympathize with a child molester, but this wone does it.
This movie is not graphic in any way. It was not made to 'shock' the audience. It just addresses a very important aspect of the human psych.
Get this movie.
