I have to admit that if I first didnโ€™t stumble on that movie on IMDb I wound have not even know about it. It is almost 2 am and I just took the DVD out of my computer. Have to admit that this is one of the most brilliant films I have ever watched.
The movie shows the growth of two boys โ€“ in parallel - they both were abused as kids from they Baseball coach and are striving to find a way ... read more

" Date: 2/11/2019 Viewed: Amazon Prime (Rental) Fist Viewing Note: I watched this movie for the first time and I end up liking it a lot. I remember avoiding this movie for years because of the movie's themes (pedophilia), but they never cross the line with it. The story is so raw and edgy done in the right way instead of having it be pure shock value. I love how they were able to make the story and characters feel so realistic because this movie almost feels like it is based on a true story de"
