Sara Goldberg: The Home Wrecker
In his HBO film, Alex Gibney does the unforgivable by repeatedly exploiting an 8-year-old special needs child while never seeking permission or even speaking with her mother. Something the mother of the special needs child calls “disgusting.” Instead, Mr. Gibney weaves a teary-eyed tale around Sara Goldberg and her blaming others about the break-up of her family. But watch what her own daughter and former husband have to say about it—she was the one who splintered her family by siding with a manipulative drug-using son, ignoring a daughter devoted to raising a child with special needs. What kind of grandmother selfishly puts herself and what she wants ahead of a devoted daughter and an innocent child? Moreover, what kind of a grandmother would insist on keeping a drug abuser around her special needs granddaughter? Alex Gibney’s star.
