Disturbing details of predatory behavior by teachers won't give you those warm back-to-school feelings. Keep This Between Us is heavy -- after all, many people have positive feelings about their teachers and school experiences. The fact that there are so many instances of teacher-student relationships and sexual assault in schools without reprimand is a tough pill to swallow, but a necessary truth to be revealed. Though slow-moving, this docuseries is an important watch for all, but especially for teens and parents of teens, as Cheryl Nichols candidly retells her story, with red flags and miscommunication as takeaways to prevent this from happening to others. Cheryl's directorial choice to return to her hometown and have the tough sit-down conversations with those who witnessed it all will have viewers watching through the end.
