This article sounds quite a bit more sensational than the way Noah described the documentary in his article.
Of course, this could merely be for the purpose of drumming up support for the documentary. I'll be interested in seeing how much Noah has to sell-out in order to get this thing made and promoted. If it's too sensational, it could backfire.
In this article, it talks about how Noah fled the group. This is very unlikely, considering the time period in which he left. I'll probably have those that did in fact have to run away in order to leave TF years ago, jumping on me for writing this. Don't get me wrong, I was in homes where this happened, so I know that many years ago, it was almost the only way for young people to get out. I was also around when some teens failed in their attempts and ended up in solitary confinement with a full-time adult monitor/guard. However, I think the truth is sensational enough, it doesn't need to be padded with extreme claims nor exaggerations in order to be effective.
I'll be very interested in how this documentary turns out. I hope it gets made because I think there is definitely a story to be told.
