This documentary is about a man who was abused by a catholic priest and, started to deal with it 20 years after the fact. He sues the church and meets other victims. I saw it on HBO 10 years ago, before I was even dealing with my own abuse. I didn't understand why it made me cry then. It still makes me cry. Be prepared for that before you watch it. its about 90 minutes long.

Hey Jude:

Not only does this movie highlight the methods of abusers and the impact of CSA, it also shows up the--to me, inexplicable--attachment of catholics to that church, in the face of massive and growing evidence that it routinely covers up, and sometimes fosters, sexual abuse of children.

Just sayin'. The show is well worth watching... then take a deep breath and say "Peace!"
