Uncle Doug did not hurt me physically, but he laid the groundwork for who and what I would become with men throughout my adolescence and into my early adulthood — a wreckage of fondled girlhood looking out a dark window whenever a man was on top of me.
Trivia: Geraldine, it is understood, was well into her 20s when she played her role in this film 2009.
I chose to narrate my own story, rather than let the one Doug told persist any longer in my own mind.
Or perfectly normal for me to try to seduce a 35-year-old when I was 15.

The lead female, played by Geraldine Martineau, is nude through most of this film, although Geraldine is indeed an adult so no controversy in that department.
