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

Jodie Foster has since acknowledged that Paramount executives refused to even let her audition at first. "I'd spent five years in college, and the last time people saw me in a film, I was a chubby teenager." It was only after Kelly McGillis--then a hot property due to the enormous success of Top Gun (1986)--signed on that Paramount would consider letting Foster play Sarah, since the studio didn't believe this movie stood a chance if neither of its stars had box-office clout. Foster and McGillis were rumored to have been lovers at the time, and it was at McGillis' insistence that Foster be given a chance to try out. See more »

Amazing Performances Raise Rough Film.
One of the roughest films ever produced that is pure misery to sit through due to its realism and Jodie Foster's striking Oscar-winning performance. Foster stars as a sexual victim who tries to get prison sentences imposed upon the men who cheered on her gang rape at a sleazy roadhouse. Foster is far from being an angel herself and every little thing in her past seems to come back and haunt her. A great supporting turn from Kelly McGillis (who plays Foster's lawyer) just adds to Foster's show-stopping role. Not a film I love, but a good film that displays the seemingly ungodly cinematic talents of Jodie Foster. 4 stars out of 5.
