Not to be confused with the Netflix documentary of the same name, the Australian drama Disclosure from writer/director Michael Bentham, hammers home the notion that “there are two sides to every story, and then there is the truth.”
Disclosure stars Mark Leonard Winter, Geraldine Hakewill, Matilda Ridgway, Tom Wren, along with Greg Stone and follows two couples who go to war over an allegation of child-on-child abuse. Australian documentary maker Emily, and her journalist husband, Danny, are reeling from an allegation of abuse their 4-year-old daughter Natasha has made against a local politician’s 9-year-old son, Ethan. Ethan’s parents, Joel and Bek, arrive unannounced at Emily and Danny’s house intent on convincing the couple that Natasha’s allegation is a fabrication. Accusations, arguments, and the ultimate search for leverage turn their civil conversation into a vicious confrontation.
Disclosure world premiered at the 31st Palm Springs International Film Festival, and was an official selection at Newport Beach Film Festival and Australia’s Gold Coast Film Festival. Breaking Glass Pictures will release the film on VOD/DVD starting June 30.
