I happened to stumble across a new film about CSA which is due for release any moment now, it is entitled "CLOSURE" and has been written by a guy named Douglas Downing III.

Plot Outline:
For the average twenty-year-old college male, "Spring Break" is a time to "cut it loose" and "get wild". No matter what the destination is, heavy drinking and plenty of irresponsible behaviors are on the horizon, but not for "LUKE WISER" our twenty-year-old main character. For Luke he will spend "Spring Break" driving to his hometown to confront the man that sexually abused him as a child. END

Douglas Downing III has a website on MySpace which features trailers from the film, but please be aware that you will find them **TRIGGERING**, the website can be found here:

http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fus...0a-ef3fbf68b40e

Also if you are a member of MySpace message him and lend your support.

Cheers

Kirk

They don't give a release date, but I would like to see it, I see a lot of my story in it, trickery, grooming, etc.

This trailer is WAY too triggering. I don't think I could see this film.

I'd like to hear about release dates, etc. I couldn't find anything on the web beyond the Myspace page when I first read this thread. I found the trailers, but I decided not to watch them. (My T had to cancel my appointment last week, so I'll hold off on trying to watch them till I'm going to see her.)

Any chance of doing some cross promotion with the upcoming MS Conference?

Thanks,

Joe

it might be a good movie but its not real you know?you can not act abuse, i watched the trailer and yes it triggered me ,but when the man is punching the kid at the begining ,you can not act that ,the look on his face is not right,only an insane person can have the look that my abuser had ,they cant show how hitting made him more and more aroused ,or how it builds the hitting and choking getting worse and worse as he got closer to his climax,can they show the kids thoughts? the fear that this time he just might kill me before he finishes. i'm not ragging on the movie ,i think it can help lots of people understand abuse ,but a movie can never mirror the true horror we suffered. i hope lots of normals see it but do you think they will? will they be interested in it anymore than they are interested in what happens two doors down the street?

shadow, you raise some good points. Either way, part of me wants to see it and part of me is kinda fearful. I watched another movie last year that folks on here raved about, and I was squirming over that one as it was. Trigger-city!

Philo,

I was asking about the MS Conference this fall, not the upcoming retreat. I wondered if there might be some opportunity for each (the film and the Conference) to help publicize one another.

In the meantime I'll be watching this thread for updates.

Thanks,

Joe

Thank you for the update, are you giving them feedback yourself?

The trailers for this film really hooked me as far as being tricked/groomed/manipulated.

Philobat,

Iíve been keenly following the posts about this movie. I got to see the movie previews on the website(s) before they were pulled.

I appreciate the apologies from the producers and director (please thank them but also at least convey my personal opinion on this) that although this is a sensitive topic, I knew viewing such a movie preview would be. I was prepared for a trigger event. I was triggered but I was pre-prepared and it was my choice. I actually watched it again a few days later and watched all of the clips as I wanted to gain as much insight into this forthcoming movie as I could.

I was better prepared second time around.

As this thread has evolved, the finale of the movie has also been revealed and if I can read between the lines it sounds like it didnít end on a positive or affirmative side for victims nor did it really achieve what the supposed intent was Ė to assist abuse victims. At least thatís what Iíve interpreted from your comments and those of other people you have shown this movie to.

Thatís ok too and my point is still a thankyou. As you mentioned, and somebody else who posted did too, if you havenít lived through this yourself itís hard to accurately capture it all and tell the story.

I emplore the producers for what they tried to do. So a big thankyou. And a thankyou again to them and you that they have received constructive criticism and havenít shelved the whole project but are willing to do it again and better this time. I think thatís awesome and I canít wait to see the finished movie. It will be tough to watch, and Iíll probably see it by myself with a big box of tissues but I think it will help me in my recovery.

Their decision to remove the trailers of the existing movie again demonstrates their true concern for us survivors. Hip, hip, hooray!!

but how could you make a movie about sa that wouldnt be triggering? i mean it has to have the trigger stuff or its just fantasy fiction you know? i guess i revised my opinion ,it could never be totaly true to what really happens to us ,for it to be that real you would have to watch one made by the perp ,i dont think they should not do the movie. and if its not a happy ending then that is true to life also ,it triggerd me and it seemed like it was using what happened to us for profit but i dont think thats right now . maybe its ok just like it is?
