flipper - "...My longest term friend from high school and his wife watched it and was really shocked by the horror we all had to go through as young JWs being raised up in it..."
Yeah, you can't help but feel furious for all the young JW kids who've been picked on simply for being JWs, when in a lot of ways, they had no fucking choice, and weren't even able to articulate that.
There was a scene in the Carrie remake that really stuck with me.
The coach had given punishment laps to all the girls who'd hurt Carrie, and capped their sentence with something that really hit home:
"...and while you're running, I'd like you all to think long and hard about what it would be like to have to be Carrie White..." (paraphrasing, but I think it's close)
God, I love that movie.
