Last night HBO premiered the first segment of its two-part documentary titled ‘Leaving Neverland’. The documentary addresses the longtime allegations against Jackson for the sexual abuse of minors and the graphic details recalled in the documentary have been haunting viewers since it was screened at Sundance film festival earlier this year.
Much like Netflix’s Surviving R.Kelly, HBO’s two-part documentary deals directly with alleged victims and the allegations that have been up in the air since the ’90s. “Leaving Neverland explores the separate but parallel experiences of two young boys, James Safechuck, at age ten, and Wade Robson, at age seven, both of whom were befriended by Michael Jackson.”
“Through gut-wrenching interviews with Safechuck, now 40, and Robson, now 36, as well as their mothers, wives and siblings, the film crafts a portrait of sustained abuse, exploring the complicated feelings that led both men to confront their experiences after both had a young son of his own.”
