STAR RATINGS GUIDE
This Felt Searingly Real
💛 Wow. This is an incredibly powerful story of cult deprogramming, told with intense empathy for its main character, 17 year old Piper. I walked in her shoes as she was torn away from the life she’d always known and plunged into a world she didn’t trust.
💚 I truly saw everything from Piper’s perspective, even as I willed her to see things differently. I felt her fear and uncertainty, her despair and confusion. I learned at her pace.
💜 As someone who’s always been interested in cults and the psychology behind them, this was fascinating. It looked at all the aspects of cult membership, from joining to living as part of one to leaving. I could see elements drawn from various real-life cults, especially Anne Hamilton-Byrne’s The Family, but also elements of WACO and Jonestown.
💗 There’s a brilliant show called The Path, of which I was reminded throughout. But if you’ve ever watched a documentary about cults, this feels very authentic.
