Ruth decides that she must discipline the girls, and encourages her three young sons to share in the girls' punishments. David, their 12-year-old neighbor, has developed an innocent crush on the older sister. As the summer progresses, he finds himself a witness to her sadistic torture. He wants to stop the abuse, but first he must find an adult who will believe his unlikely story. «The Girl Next Door» is loosely based on the true story of the murder of Sylvia Likens.

Highly disturbing!07 January 2011

WARNING: this film is VERY disturbing with some very traumatic scenes, but you MUST watch it, for it is based on a true story. A girl lived those events so imagine how traumatic it was for her.
