It’s Friday, and time to take a look at what’s new on Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand today, which includes a new original film.
Here’s the rundown:
Leave No Trace
“Leave No Trace” investigates the century-long cover-up by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to conceal pedophiles that were in their ranks and how their secret “perversion files” would eventually lead to the financial downfall and bankruptcy of the organization. The film looks at 70 years of abuse, told through first-hand accounts of survivors still trying to cope with their lives today and their crusade for justice. Interviews and taped depositions with former BSA leadership set a revealing account of how America’s largest youth organization failed to protect the very boys entrusted to them, leaving a wreckage of human lives in its wake. The BSA filed for bankruptcy in February of 2020. Since then, over 82,000 men have come forward with claims of abuse. The proposed reorganization plan for the BSA would include the largest sexual abuse settlement in history, dwarfing even that of the U.S. Catholic Church.
Miguel pursues his love for singing in spite of his family’s ban on music. He stumbles into the Land of the Dead, where he learns about his great-great-grandfather who was a legendary singer.
