Peri Gilpin was the best she's ever been!
29 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What can I say Peri Gilpin was the best she's ever been. She played the role of the rape victim masterfully. She should have won an award for her performance.

The thing that bothers me and is so freaky about the movie is that as usual the guilty is protected and the innocent is left vulnerable. The police should give more protection and support to victims of crime. Another thing that's out of line is the accused always has more rights then the victims. This is wrong, and it should be changed.

I give this movie 10 stars out of 10. It's great. I recommend it to anyone who is interested.
