This Canadian Broadcasting Corporation film concerns the trial of a woman used by Toronto Police as bait in a rape sting. Based on a true story, the film is an excellent coverage of the experience of the woman, "Jane Doe," as she sues the Toronto Police Dept. for their actions.
Noted appearances are Steve Mackintosh (of Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), playing the plaintiff's attorney, and Gary Lewis as the Police Department's defense lawyer.
The mostly-handheld cinematography througout the film, as well as the "jump-cut" editing add to the extraordinary level of realism in this production.
Definitely see this film for the terrific and terrifying acting power of Gary Lewis in the final courtroom scenes.
Hats off to the CBC for airing this program!
