    So disturbing... But one of the most natural scripts I have ever heard onscreen, brought to life with fantastic performances.

    Though fiction, it is a great observation of the fine line between innocence and depravity. One wonders how someone so young could really be so capable of doing the things Telly and Caspar do...
