Sarah Tobias goes to her local bar and is gang-raped by three men. The district attorney on the case is Katheryn Murphy who wants to prove that although Sarah had taken drugs that night and was acting provocatively while in the bar, this is no reason for her to be so brutally attacked and the men responsible should be brought to justice.

Jodie Foster has since acknowledged that she purposely gave a trite performance in her audition so that Paramount executives would feel that she was a safe choice. Foster had been going through a bit of a dry spell at the time and badly needed a big role in a mainstream movie. It was only after Kelly McGillis - then a hot property due to the enormous success of Top Gun (1986) - signed on that Paramount would even consider letting Foster play Sarah, since the studio didn't believe this film stood a chance if neither of its stars had box-office clout. (Foster and McGillis were rumored to have been girlfriends at the time, and it was at McGillis's insistence that Foster be given a chance to try out.) See more »

I was appalled by one reviewers comments on this movie, stating that a rape victim "got what she deserved". NO one, Woman or man, deserves to be raped, violated or harmed just because they were at the wrong place.
This movie is based on a true story, and the actors were very moving. People make mistakes, someone could be that upset and choose to behave in a manner not appropriate, yet when that Person chooses to stop and say NO, then No is it. No, Stop, Don't, these words do not mean, well, I ask for it. Anyone who thinks otherwise, I feel sorry for because they are sad, lonely and deprived of self worth.
Jodi Foster Is a great actress and puts all her strength in her roles. She is very talented and she and Kelly M. made this movie. Hopefully the person that had to endure this horrid act, is going on, with strength and success.
