This is that movie that the little kid in it grew up to be a child molester and that’s his momma. Eunice. But she ain’t the real woman. The real woman is Linda and dude raped her daughters as little girls. Apple is tripping airing this movie. Man white men don’t care about our women at all. I ain’t even gonna watch it.
