Important exploration
31 May 2018 | by van-83714See all my reviews

I appreciated an attempt to explore difficult subject matter without much sympathy or sugar coating. Some may have not liked it for a lack of resolution. But for the victims of rape, day-to-day coping may be the best resolution. Dianne Wiest was great in one of her first TV/screen roles. Graham Beckel was perplexing as the face of rage. This film includes some well-known actors in early career roles.
