Gregg Araki’s adaptation of Scott Heim’s 1996 novel brilliantly shows the lasting impact childhood sexual abuse at the hands of their mustachioed baseball coach has on two young men, one gay (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), the other straight (Brady Corbet). However, the Australian Family Association argued that it shows pedophiles how to successfully molest children, as it depicts the older man's coaxing. Though the AFA attempted to have Mysterious Skin banned, the Classification Review Board denied them (filthy pedophiles that they are).
