Sarah Tobias goes to her local bar and is gang-raped by three men. The district attorney on the case is Katheryn Murphy who wants to prove that although Sarah had taken drugs that night and was acting provocatively while in the bar, this is no reason for her to be so brutally attacked and the men responsible should be brought to justice.Written by

Jane Fonda was offered the role of Kathryn but turned it down because she thought the script was so poor. It had already been announced that Fonda would star in the movie when she changed her mind and bowed out. See more »
When man is playing the pin-ball machine in the bar his score reads 196,100, but a few seconds later, after a reaction shot of Kathryn, the score is only 14,050. See more »

Powerfully Told Drama.
Jodie Foster plays Sarah Tobias, a small-town waitress with a bad reputation(and drug user) who is brutally attacked by three men in a bar, who were also being cheered on by some of the onlookers. Sarah is determined to convince the District Attorney on the case(Kelly McGillis) to bring it to trial, not just the three attackers, but the onlookers as well.
Powerful film is supremely well acted by Jodie Foster(Academy Award Winner)Film runs the risk of being crass exploitation, but is well directed, and again it is the sympathetic and defiant performance of Jodie as this wronged, violated woman that makes this film work as well as it does.
Not for the faint-hearted.
