Aurore
"Aurore" was incredibly difficult to get through. It's based on a true story of horrific abuse that a girl suffers at the hands of her father and stepmother. It takes place in 1920's Quebec. It is beautifully shot but I'd be hard-pressed to recommend this to anyone because of how difficult it is to watch. The only reason I kept watching was my intense hope that justice would somehow be served.
This case of abuse is said to be a turning point in the way cases were handled (as many who had knowledge of the abuse turned away, believing it was not their business) and prosecuted. It would be a tidy way of summing up this film and getting a sense of closure but it is difficult to feel any sense of good coming out of bad.
Filmed in Quebec by Quebecois director Luc Dionne.
