Written by IMN on 2 Jun 2020
“DISCLOSURE,” from writer/director Michael Bentham is a film that hammers home the notion that “there are two sides to every story, and then there is the truth.” “DISCLOSURE” follows two couples who go to war over an allegation of child-on-child abuse.
Australian documentary maker Emily, and her journalist husband, Danny, are reeling from an allegation of abuse their 4-year-old daughter Natasha has made against a local politician’s 9-year-old son, Ethan. Ethan’s parents, Joel and Bek, arrive unannounced at Emily and Danny’s house intent on convincing the couple that Natasha’s allegation is a fabrication.
Accusations, arguments, and the ultimate search for leverage turn their civil conversation into a vicious confrontation.“Powerful, intense, and timely” (Cinema Australia), and thriving on “razor-sharp characters and dialogue”. “DISCLOSURE” world premiered at the 31st Palm Springs International Film Festival, and was an official selection at Newport Beach Film Festival and Australia’s Gold Coast Film Festival. The film stars Mark Leonard Winter, Geraldine Hakewill, Matilda Ridgway, Tom Wren, and Greg Stone.
