Linda Hamilton plays Gretta Rideout, an abused wife who constantly gets raped by her husband. In 1977 Oregon the rape law is changed so wives can accuse their husbands of rape. The Rideout Case is the first in Oregon history after this new law & this motion picture is the story. Linda Hamilton gives a great first leading performance in this gritty made for TV drama. Mickey Rourke is great as the abusive husband. Overall this TV is a must see with such an important subject matter.
