| Excellent Depiction of what a high conflict divorce looks like to all
This is an excellent movie that shows a high conflict divorce and it's affects not only on the targeted parent but on the child and the alienator. And it shows a judge's dilemma on how to handle things. A father alienates his son from the mother. After two years of being kept out of her son's life, they finally go to court. The judge listens to all sides and then listens to the child. Despite the child's wishes to live with the father, the judge explains that this child needs to know his mother who loves him and needs to be with her to do this and awards the mother custody. Obviously, the father is not to happen with this and even attempts to kidnap the son. King Solomon would have been proud of this movie. I think this movie would make an excellent teaching tool for any professionals including the judges and parents who are dealing with high conflict divorces.
