Movies about Sexual Abuse? - July 31st 2009, 05:43 AM

Are there any good movies about sexual abuse? I've seen Sybill and Girl, Interrupted (which has an abused character), but that's about it. I'd really appriciate any suggestions. I'd prefer films that are about sexual abuse, not just feature it, but any will be fine. Thanks a bunch .

Your Pal,

Steve

I saw part of "Love Sick" Which is about a sex addict who was sexually abused as a child... if that counts.

Hard Candy.

That movie is amazing. It's not really sexual abuse, I'm not sure what you would call it.

I saw a film called "The Duchess" in which the title character is abused sexually physically and verbally. It wasn't a very good film, though.

The novel Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson was made into a movie and its very moving. Its linked more towards rape, but rape is abuse.

The movie Houndog with Dakota Fanning is one of the most amazing movies I've ever seen.

I will warn you and everyone else, that these movies, especially Houndog are extremely triggering.


Love is all we need. :]
