Real Men 2003
3h | Crime, Drama | TV Movie 12 March 2003
Working an old missing child case, a police detective finds himself drawn to an orphanage. He suspects the caretaker of sexual improprieties with the minors there but cannot get them to talk. The key may be a neighborhood child.
Although, this film is quite disturbing, it has some brilliant performances and is a very realistic look on institutional abuse in children’s home. Harry Eden for instance, was quite phenomenal playing the young abused Russell and I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of him in the future, in fact he is making his hollywood movie debut, in the new peter pan movie. But back to the point, if you dont like un happy disturbing films, I dont recommend this to you, but for all who could get through it I recomend it to you, because it is better everyone knows the truth about these things, so we can help stop them. Granted this is a fictional peice, these things still go on, probably even more than they used to, and it happens to millions and millions of poor kids. So watch it!
