Boys of St. Vincent
3 years ago

 Sharon,

 

It's been a long time since I watched it, but yes I have seen the movie Boys of St. Vincent. It was a very accurate, moving portayal of child abuse within church walls. I remember feeling at times, disgusted, and other times down right angry, when I watched it, but being an alter boy in my youth, and seeing other kids whom I was friends with at the time, go through much of what the movie story line was, I felt it was real and very gritty, especially with the touch subject matter. Kudos for the writer/producer of the film, as when the movie came out, most people were shocked and turned away from the dirty secret.
