new film – teen molested by a coach

… Writer-director Jennifer Fox dives into the sexual abuse she suffered as a teenager, and proceeds to interrogate her own memories with unflinching clarity. …

In the age of #MeToo, The Tale shows how every story of sexual abuse is unique …

The Tale, about a teen molested by a coach, is Sundance’s most unexpectedly vital film

Laura Dern plays the victim as an adult, Isabel Nelisse the teen.

The teen comes to terms with sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her running coach. At the time — age 13 — she believed it was a romantic relationship.

By coincidence Isabel Nelisse was a gymnast at Gymnix, as was her sister Sophie.

Thanks GML.
