Those "baby pictures" (that is, early-life photographs) of Laura Mills shown in the opening title-sequence, are in fact those of Jennie Garth; she and her family loaned those photos to the production. See more »
'Without Consent' is a movie that shows what really goes on in 'correctional facilities.' The plot is good and has good writing to back it up. Also, casting Jennie Garth in a lead role was a good choice.
The film provides good acting from everyone but especially from the main actress, Garth. She can really portray an out of control teen who then suffers while staying in a prison like facility. She can lose her temper, but in a good way to make it really believable that she is going through pure torture. Jennie Garth was perfect for the role and it wouldn't have been as good of a movie if a different actress had tried to play the character of Laura. Eric Close plays Laura's brother. He isn't given a lot of screen time or lines, but for the part that he is given, he makes the most of it. The actors who play Laura's parents are excellent. Sure, they are main characters and need to be shown because of the story line, but they aren't given too much exposure to either. But once again, the two play their parts as best as they can and it makes the movie better. Other characters such as Marty, C.J., Rachel, the doctor and all of the others are played by great actors. The casting department did a terrific job with this film.
Other than the acting, the plot is also great. Somebody has finally shown what really goes on behind locked doors. Hopefully this movie has convinced parents to not necessarily believe what they might hear from the people who run places like these. The writing is nice. Not too much work was put into it but the actions are better.
All in all this is one of the better TV movies. Definitely watch this if it comes on television in the near future.
