Capturing the Friedmans
Source: Catholic News Service
Unusual documentary chronicling the destruction of a Long Island family in the late 1980s after the teacher-father and his teen-age son are accused of child molestation and the mother and two other sons take sides. Filmmaker Andrew Jarecki interviews law enforcement personnel and surviving family members but it is the Friedmans' own obsessive taping of their furious arguments at the time that speaks volumes about this intensely dysfunctional family and their wavering versions of the truth. Sexual references, specifically pedophilia, and much rough language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
