7 April 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I first read Nancy Ziegenmeyer's story in an issue of Reader's Digest. I also read about her in People and Good Housekeeping and of course read her book as well. This is a fine film about a courageous woman. What got me about the film was it showed Nancy as warts and all. She was promiscuous and did have an affair before the rape. Still, she showed a lot of courage in speaking out the way she did to help others. Also I like the fact that the man who raped her was sentenced to life in prison with no parole.
