    Absolutely terrific from start to finish. Builds the story at a good pace, giving you time to pause and absorb the sheer scale of the abuse and cover up. Perfectly cast, expertly scripted and terrifically acted. One of the best movies I've seen for a very long time.

    Horrible subject matter handled brilliantly, I'm not one for emotions generally but I was definitely upset towards the end as the gravity of it all took hold...
