As A survivor
I am a survivor of sibling abuse. It sounds like a joke, but it's not. For ten years I was beaten by my older brother as a way for him to release his anger at my parent's divorce and whatever else was going wrong in his life. I never realized that it was a problem that other people suffered from until I watched this movie. I was pretty much ready to buy into the fact that my black eyes and scars were a result of "sibling rivalry" and it was normal. It's not normal. This was the only movie/TV show I have ever seen that addressed the issue that I held/hold so dear to my heart. I feel it was wonderfully acted and that people can learn from it. It is sad that most didn't. I will forever remember this movie as the only thing I could use to communicate to my mom what was going on. If I could get this movie on VHS, I would. Just to keep it and remember...and maybe help others in the future...
