Storyline

Filmmaker Angela Shelton journeys across the United States meeting other Angela Sheltons in an effort to survey women in America. She discovers that 24 out of 40 Angela Sheltons have been abused just like herself. Then the filmmaker meets an Angela Shelton who tracks sexual predators and lives in the same town as the filmmaker's father who molested her and her stepsiblings for years. The filmmaker's survey of women becomes a journey of self discovery during which she decides to finally confront her past and her own father - on Father's Day. The Angela Sheltons complete the journey by teaching the filmmaker about forgiveness, faith and the power of the human spirit, no matter what your name is. In all probability, you know someone who was abused, if you think not, meet the Angela Sheltons. Written by Angela Shelton

Serious subjects, narcissistic filmmaker.
15 February 2011 | by lindseychazenSee all my reviews

I believe sexual abuse/any abuse is a serious matter and I am very sympathetic for anyone who has suffered from abuse. However, this film is not about other Angela Sheltons in the country, it is about the filmmaker Angela Shelton and her suffering. She uses other women to support her own suffering and to justify her pain which is extremely narcissistic, as this discredits all of the other Angela Shelton stories. The filmmaker constantly cuts other women off in the middle of their sentences in order to "one up" their stories. The documentary is very choppy and hard to follow-she throws in photos of herself in dramatic poses, sometimes even sexualizing herself (very ironic considering the point of the film). When Angela meets women in the South with very southern accents, she changes her accent dramatically--when she speaks to the camera about herself, she has no accent whatsoever, what's up with that? The women who she interviews have some great words and advice to give, but it seems to constantly be discredited. There was one point in the film where one of the Angela Sheltons tells the filmmaker that she'd given her the best day of her life and changed it in a very significant way, the filmmaker explains that her words were nice, but she wanted HER life changed... I was really irritated with the filmmaker Angela Shelton. She seemed very inconsiderate and did not know how to produce a film.
