Surprisingly good

7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Jessica Bowman is Cayley, a high school girl, who, because of a tragedy in her life, begins acting out sexually and soon develops a reputation as being very easy to get into bed. With The help of a school counselor, she decides to turn her life around. Unfortunately, when one of the guys she had slept with approaches her for sex and she says no, he wont take no for an answer and rapes her. The rape charge, however, proves difficult to stick because of Cayley's reputation. She wont give up however, and sets about trying to bring this guy to justice.

This movie was really good, much better then the typical lifetime movie, and is very realistic in showing the difficulties involved in proving sex crimes. The movie is somber and well acted and draws you in from the start. Jessica Bowman's performance was way above average and although this is a pretty heavy movie, it's a good one and one I'd recommend. Wish there were more comments on it.

formulaic, but sound

6/10

This is a pretty good TV movie. I could understand someone rating it highly. I can't think of anything really lacking in it, but somehow it didn't draw me in all that much.

All the performances are good, the production values are solid, so I guess it's the story that left me wanting a little bit more.

Hmmmm.

As I'm thinking about why I didn't like it more than I did, maybe it's because I'm a man. Most of the men in this movie were scumbags, and the women were the protagonists. I think that may have made me vaguely uncomfortable. Perhaps that was part of the point? Give male viewers a sense of general dread, similar (perhaps) to how it feels to get caught into the kind of lifestyle and reputation that Cayley did? Just speculation. If so, I guess maybe I should rate it higher, since it succeeded!

Anyway, it's far from being a bad film. Pretty good, actually. I think I would have preferred a slightly more gender-balanced allocation of good/bad roles, but maybe that's just me. So, 6/10 for me, but if you don't share my discomfort (or approve of it), you may well rate it higher.

9/10

This movie is just awesome and shows one how to control yourself sexually.The performance by Jessica bowman and Linda carter are well beyond words.......And,i suggest this is a kinda movie which every college student must watch and learn a lesson from it that sex is not everything in life,its just a part of your true love life and brings with itself big responsibility.

Such movies must be made often and shown on TV to make college goers realise what life is all about and what place sex has in it. So,at end being a college student i learnt a lesson from it and hope many like me will do the same.... Worth to watch!!
