"Patrick V. Brown, himself abused by
'Dr. Bill', takes us on a painful, yet hopeful journey from darkness to light with his extraordinary and thoughtful award-winning film, In A Town This Size."
- Here Women Talk
"The salience of this topic to the State College and Penn State communities, together with Mr. Brown’s reasons for making the film made for a highly personal discussion."
- Rock Ethics Institute / Penn State
"And that’s the best thing about this movie, made by a childhood abuse victim about other abuse victims."
- Eric's Cynical Cinema
"One of the stated purposes of this documentary is to change the legislation regarding the statute of limitations.
Be sure to watch the deleted scenes on the DVD for more information on that area."
-Pop Culture Beast
"It is very hard to watch as (a father) tells about his
realization that a man who he trusted totally had abused
three of his six children."
- Reviews by Amos Lassen
"Watch this, prepare yourself, steel yourself… you will probably end up angry and you will weep… it's an important film to see."
