It’s been a long time since I’ve watched a movie that describes a family dynamic that is common, complicated and often a hotbed for disfunction.

What a surprise it was to me to watch this 1982 Drama about a father having sex with his daughter and the many repercussions of telling the truth.

There’s no doubt in my mind that so very often sexual abuse continues, especially within a family unit, when silence is upheld. Sadly, a lot of the time people don’t even realise they are being silent about something.

The performances in this movie but ALL the actors has me thinking about it non stop for days. Credit to the producers and everyone involved in making this movie, 37 years later and still this type of story is happening all the time. (clearly, this never tarnished Ted Danson or Glen Closes careers)
