Exceptional Movie a must see
17 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WOW, what an exceptional movie this is. True story about a rape victim and the aftermath and how she becomes a strong advocate for rape victims. I have read the book (which is very good) and the movie follows the book fairly well. We understand that Nancy has her flaws, she had an affair before the rape but Nancy with her flaws is a strong woman in the end. The acting is great especially Patricia Wettig, by far her best performance. Great storytelling, great supporting actors, the movie moves a a good pace. My only disparaging thought about this movies was that it was a made for TV movie. Not enough people see this type of movie and its a story that needs to get out. If you get a chance to see this movie or read the book by all means do so.
