Una

Drama


 

A confrontation between a paedophile and the woman he preyed upon when she was a little girl.

No. This topic is not the territory of ambiguity or interpretation of intent no matter how good the director and playwright are. The sexual abuse of a minor is unforgivably wrong in every instance. Paedophilia is not movie entertainment - however good the actors may be in portraying the psychological damage which is inevitable in the aftermath of the event. "Una" is guilty of attempting to endow a veneer of normalcy to vile behaviours that fester in society without condemning them. No.
