"Home movies, sibling solidarity, wild allegations of sexual abuse, and the power of suggestion all wage battle over the truth, forever disfiguring the face of a seemingly normal Jewish family."

" 6.28 Unforgettable documentary of a family faced with scandal when the father is arrested for child pornography and possible child fornication. Director Andrew Jarecki's captured the family Friedmans at its best and worse, a must see film."
