What People Are Saying About “HELPLESSNESS”

“Rarely are authors able to imbue their stories with as much heart, pain, and passion as Keeper. Audiences are not ready for the depths that this work chronicles. There is a saying in screenwriting that a good movie is three good scenes and no bad ones. Here, the Keeper seems to have more than a handful of great potential scenes, and they are led by the epic, gut-wrenching family meeting where the assault revelations come out, followed by the pulse-pounding final confrontation between Keeper and the tormenter in Henry. All in all, there is plenty here to level the audience with this work’s high-stakes drama and harsh truths. – TaleFlick
