    This is a very strong and powerful film and will not be for everyone. Unfortunately, this is a true story and is very sad that this type of abuse occurs in our society. The acting was very good by Catherine Keener but was exceptional by Ellen Page. I would highly recommend this movie.

    I am from Indiana, I was born and raised here. It's hard and difficult to understanding why such a person has to experience such a brutal and horrific life. How people can be this cruel and un-caring is impossible to understand. I bought this movie because I have only heard about Sylvia Likens and her case. The house was recently tore down in April of 2009. I would recommend this movie because when we think our lives our bad, if we can afford to buy this movie and watch it then is our life really as bad as we think???? I wouldn't recommend really young children.

    This is a good movie and it oens peoples eyes to chilsd abuse, after you watch it you wonder why no one did anything to help that poor girl. It would not be good for small children to watch but I would deffenetly let older kids just so they can see how sick some people can be and if they have a friend going through it they need to speak up.
