Storyline

Naive small town teenager Ellie, is raped and beaten on an outing with some older men. The rape investigation and trial are bungled by both local police and the prosecutor. The rapist's female attorney Lynn Hollister shreds Ellie's tearful account on the stand, as Hollister forcefully defends her client. The only other witnesses are the rapist's cleaned-up male buddies, so the smarmy rapist Carl Berg is acquitted. Ellie's mother, mystery novelist Ruth Rendell, sets out to avenge her daughter, though Ellie's stepfather Frank opposes the plan, fearing repercussions. Mrs. R's daughter (played by Season Hubley, daughter of the animators John and Faith Hubley) is caught in the crossfire between her parents, especially when Frank cautions her against talking to strange men.

Effective TV Drama
26 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title character is a naive small town teenager raped and beaten on an outing with some older men. Mrs. R's daughter is played by the attractive Season Hubley, daughter of the animators John and Faith Hubley. This film was made the same year as the Paul Schrader film Hardcore, in which Hubley played the hooker who helps a small town Midwesterner (George C. Scott) find his runaway daughter.

The rape investigation and trial are bungled by police and prosecutor, while the rapist's female attorney effectively defends her client (played smarmily by John Fitzpatrick). The rapist is acquitted, so her mother, Mrs. R (played by Cloris Leachman, 2 years after doing Mel Brooks' High Anxiety) sets out to avenge her, though her stepfather (played by Donald Moffat) opposes the plan.
