‘Leaving Neverland’ Trailer: Allegations Of Michael Jackson’s Sexual Abuse Get A Searing 4 Hour Doc Treatment

theplaylist.net - 02-19


The most disturbing viewing experience at this year’s Sundance Film Festival wasn’t the horror movie you’d expect; instead, it was “Leaving Neverland,” a challenging four-hour documentary about the alleged abuse Michael Jackson visited upon two young boys, James Safechuck and Wade Robson. Our review described it as “heartbreaking,” while Indiewire’s David Ehrlich wrote, “You’ll never listen to Michael Jackson the same way again. In fact, you may never listen to Michael Jackson again at all.” HBO is set to premiere the two-part documentary across its platforms on March 3 and 4, so you can watch the film in the privacy of your own home, where you can gasp and cry as much as is necessary for the subject matter. The premium network has just released the documentary’s first trailer.
