Director: Amir Bar-Lev. 98 min. Documentary.
The story of Joe Paterno, Jerry Sandusky, and the 2011 Penn State football child sex abuse. The story that will shake you up, whether you're a parent or not, and make you even more vigilant about children's extra-curricular activities. Deservedly, the film initially focuses on whether Paterno, the small town's father figure, fulfilled his moral obligation towards Sandusky's crimes, after fulfilling his legal obligation of reporting it. But then the last third fizzles out on the crucial question of doing the right thing, even at the cost of the entire society's collapse. This could have been a very good discussion.
PS: HBO has been planning on dramatizing the story into a film, with Brian DePalma as director and Al Pacino in the lead as Paterno. Imagine the prospects.
