a classic

What can I say about such a wonderful movie. The storyline is quite simple right from the start. Sarah (Foster) entered a bar, and came out... after her rape. A lawyer (McGillis) takes her case and wants to see the gang rapists put away. Probably the best Jodie Foster role ever. Top-notch performance by a great cast, and splendidly directed and written. An instant classic. Worth watching every mi... read more

Very difficult to watch

Ultimately rewarding but hard to stomach.

As a deep admirer of JF this film is one of the most difficult I have ever had to watch. I've seen the rape scene exactly once and that was more than enough. The scene with Tobias (Jodie Foster) in the ER, after the rape, I'm stuck somewhere between heartbreak for her and revulsion for the circumstances. She looks so incredibly frail and was... read more

A Very Underrated Film

Sarah Tobias played by Jodie Foster goes out for a night of fun at a bar but things go bad and she ends up getting raped by 3 men. So A.D.A Kathryn Murphy played by Kelly McGillis takes on her case and promises not only to put the rapists away but also the men who cheered it on. This movie is an emotional rollercoaster Jodie Foster puts on one the best performan... read more

Description: A film inspired by the notorious barroom rape that occurred in New Bedford, Massachusetts in 1983. An evening at a local bar turns violent when three men push a woman onto a pool table and rape her -- as many of the bar's patrons cheer them on. When she learns that the rapists have plea-bargained their way into a lesser charge (meaning that the rape never officially occurred), the woman and her lawyer take a novel approach: they prosecute the "spectators" for encouraging the criminals. Jodie Foster won deserved acclaim for her performance as Sarah Tobias, a hard-living, fiercely independent woman is gang raped in t ... (more)

A good movie

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and maybe I should re-watch  it at some point. First of all, for Jodie Foster, this movie was a huge milestone. Indeed, even though she had some success as a child actor, she struggled during most of the 80’s and it is finally with this movie that she started to be taken seriously as an adult actor. Eventually, she would even win her 1st Academy Award and would win another one only a few years later with ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ securing her A list status for good. Concerning the movie itself, it was pretty good and Jodie Foster and Kelly McGillis were both solid but, somehow, the whole thing didn’t completely convince me. Indeed, in my opinion, it was far from being really subtle (in fact, Jodie Foster thought at fi” read more
