Is It Any Good?

Disturbing, wrenching, but impossible to look away from, this drama depicts sexual assault from an unusual point of view: the rapist's. Before we find out that a string of women are accusing Finchley of rape, we first get to know him as a loving husband and doting dad and grandfather -- up late at night Googling himself to see if anyone still remembers him, puttering around the house with his patrician, charity-minded wife Marie. But then the doorbell rings, with bad, bad tidings. The viewer, who gets to see Finchley's pain in private moments, is never unsure of his guilt; it takes Marie, Finchley's fragile adult daughter, Dee, and his other loved ones longer to grapple with the truth. What we have here is basically a portrait of a man self-destructing, no matter how much he denies the accusations. It's absolutely fascinating. It's also a major bummer. But National Treasure gets the details and the emotions right. This is gripping stuff, particularly if you've ever wondered what happens to the people whose sins are splashed across newspaper headlines.
