Leaving Neverland is being hailed as one of the most controversial documentaries of recent times.
It examines the allegations of sexual abuse levelled against the late Michael Jackson by two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck.
While Robson and Safechuck aren’t the first to come forward with allegations of child abuse against Jackson, their story has the world divided into those who believe them, and those who stand by the world’s creepiest pop icon.
If you somehow still haven’t seen the trailer, observe:
The two-part documentary is difficult to watch, but worth it to understand the horrors and complexity of sexual abuse and its long term consequences.
Leaving Neverland is the most in-depth look so far at what really happened, at least in these two cases. Through interviews with the men and their families, the director, Dan Reed, establishes a compelling narrative that will shake even the biggest Jackson fans.
It really is worth making the time to watch. I’ll assume you’re not heading out on a bender tonight, which means you’re ready to binge.
DStv subscribers can stream Leaving Neverland on Showmax right now. Otherwise, sign up for a 14-day free trial , or a 60-day free trial if you sign up for DStv Compact and Compact Plus before April 7.
This doccie is fast becoming one of those things that you just have to have an opinion on.
Don’t get left out of the conversation.
