I have a short list of films (dvd) which are very healing at least for me.

L.I.E was good, and very true about the emotional vulnerability of young kids. It was less true-to-life about sexual abusers, making the main perp-character both too sympathetic and too awful to ring true. (Kind of like Hannibal Lechter--vaguely demonic, but written to be liked.)

It could be really triggering...not so much for anything sexual that happens, but for the constant play of manipulation and menace, plus the very real pain of the young male lead.

LIE is really well made. There are a few very encouraging aspects to it, including the PedoPerp gaining some decentcy and leaving the boy alone. The vulnerability of the boy/main-character is well portrayed. His pain is nearly palpable.

The ending is rather harsh, but you might say the same thing I said to myself when it happens...."oh well."
