Do not expect the usual catholic-bashing, priest-abusing exposé that we have all become [too] familiar with in recent years...
This is so much more...this gets under the skin, into the psyche...of the victim. As for the perpetrator...few words are spoken, none in defence...his self-loathing and the hate you feel for this man-of-the-cloth are spine-chillingly palpable.
Most assuredly, Orlando Bloom has cast off his elven mantle...he delivers a performance of such magnitude and dimension that - at times - your breath will simply be taken away. He makes you feel his...pain!
Everything is assured about this film...the direction, the writing...but, this Mr Bloom's film.
A dark, intensely harrowing experience.
An adult victim of childhood sexual abuse confronts the horrors of his past.
