Moviemakers who exploit the suffering and death of children to ratchet up the dramatic stakes belong in the innermost circle of hell, but Freedomland -- clumsy and overwrought as it is -- earns the right to its harrowing trajectory.
I could only watch this film once. Too raw. Down low behavior (between the husband and a womanizer who would obviously sleep with anything walking) was awful and shocking. Bill Duke is a good director. Movie was recommended...wish I had never seen it.
