At the Sundance Festival opening Thursday the surprise program addition was the film “Justice.”   The documentary’s director Doug Liman is known for movies such as “Swingers,” “The Bourne Identity” and “Edge of Tomorrow.”

The film includes discussions of the media discourse around Ford’s allegations.  Some painted the scenario as “boys will be boys,” or countered the accusation by asking, “Why ruin a man’s life for something he did as a kid?”

In part, the film as an indictment of a broader culture that encourages us to forgive and forget misbehavior by privileged groups.
