Not so much a film about rape as it is a portrait of a woman who learns the hard way to stand up for herself
29 July 2005 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Although this women's empowerment TV-movie was written by a woman, it examines how a flirtatious night between one woman and three men goes awry quite powerfully, and both sides are equally represented (however, the filmmakers clearly do want the viewer on the girl's side). A college professor says three of her colleagues raped her in a hotel room while away at a seminar, but the men in her life try talking her out of pressing charges. Kathleen Quinlan is excellent as the naive, sexually repressed teacher, and the director doesn't tip-toe around the sordid issues involved. But those wanting a courtroom drama with a satisfying wrap-up may be disappointed; by ending the third act with a question mark, the filmmakers ask the viewers to fill in the blanks. The screenwriter isn't interested in revenge or retribution--the movie isn't about that anyway. Instead, this is a portrait of a woman who believes it's her job to wait on men, and how being overly obedient can be misunderstood. It's also about how men and women look at sex quite differently, especially when there's more than one man involved. The men felt the woman was seducing them, she felt a little drunk and flirtatious. They felt she initiated the situation, she says she was enjoying the flattery. But does she protest enough when the time is right? The movie is brave enough to ask the question and then NOT give us a concrete answer. Some may feel this is a cop-out; I felt it was thought-provoking and given a solid presentation.
