You're better off reading the book...much better off.
I didn't know about this movie until the night it premiered, and I wish it hadn't been made at all. Loosely adapted by an amazingly well-written book by Lisa Gardner, The Survivors Club presented itself with terrible acting by people trying way too hard to tug at your heartstrings. In the end, you couldn't feel sorry for any of the rape victims, you could only laugh at the actresses playing the rape victims. Plus, the plot was muddled and totally messed up. If I hadn't read the book long before this movie, I would have been confused.
TV movies and movies based off a book already have reputations for being overdramatic and awful, with few exceptions, and this film didn't help anything. This was a complete waste of film, time, and money. Don't watch the TV movie based off another Lisa Gardner book, The Perfect Husband, either. Read the two books, and might I suggest The Next Accident, The Other Daughter, and The Killing Hour.
