Synopsis
From the production team of the Academy Award-nominated Waco: The Rules of Engagement (1997) comes this harrowing account of two men wrongly accused of sexual molestation. Stephen Matthews fathered a child with his girlfriend before coming out of the closet. For a while, they enjoyed an amiable relationship, until his ex-girlfriend married an ultra-conservative man who took a dim view of Stephen's lifestyle. Tension rises when Stephen notices that his child has a black eye and suspects child abuse; the child's stepfather admits to believing in firm discipline in family matters. Soon after Stephen broaches the subject, he and his father Melvin find themselves accused of sexually torturing the boy. Not long after, they begin receiving death threats, and business at Melvin's bait shop appreciably drops. Sensational reports in the local media only fuel the growing hysteria in their rural Michigan town. The Jaundiced Eye is a piercing look at how hysteria can run justice afoul and how hate and delusion can drastically warp the life of a child and those around him. ~ Jonathan Crow, All Movie Guide
