Abuse

Movie: Abuse
Director: Arthur J. Bressan, Jr.
Produced by: Promovision International
Released By:
MPAA Rating:

In this somewhat autobiographical film, director and writer Arthur Bressan brings the issue of child abuse into focus by means of a young film student making a documentary on Thomas Carroll, lying in a hospital bed because he was beaten and burned by his parents. At first the student cannot break through the teenager’s wall of silence, but then Thomas finds out that the student filmmaker is gay just as he is, and the wall crumbles. Statistics promote an awareness of the issue of abuse, but Bressan lightens up his serious subject by inserting discreet humor at several points throughout.
