Depending on where you stand vis-a-vis Michael Jackson‘s accusers, the upcoming HBO documentary Leaving Neverland is either the game-changing proof we’ve been waiting for or “a public lynching” (as the Jackson family has called it).
Leaving Neverland is a two-part documentary exploring the separate but parallel experiences of two young boys, James Safechuck, at age ten, and Wade Robson, at age seven, both of whom were befriended by Michael Jackson. Through gut-wrenching interviews with Safechuck, now 40, and Robson, now 36, as well as their mothers, wives and siblings, the film crafts a portrait of sustained abuse, exploring the complicated feelings that led both men to confront their experiences after both had a young son of his own. Directed by Dan Reed.

Leaving Neverland premieres March 3 and 4 on HBO.
