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

In both scenes when characters are playing the pinball machine we can hear the ball rolling around, scoring points and making the usual pinball machine noises but the score on the machine never changes. See more »
Gang Rapists are brought to Justice, but what about those Loathsome, Wretched, Disgusting Bystanders who Vicariously and by Proxy take part in the Assault. This is the Theme here and Caring, Sensitives will have Little Doubt that it is Sinful if not Illegal.
Jodie Foster's Oscar Winning Performance is, arguably, Justified because She no less then Dominates every Scene. However, this is partly Due to the Weakness of the Film as a whole. The Men Accused, Trial, and backdrop of the Movie are all so Flat, Uninteresting and Unremarkable it Weakens the Exposition and the actual Rape Scene seems Exploitative.
A Social Sickness ("a rape is reported in the US every 6 minutes") that certainly is Ineffectually Addressed and Approached is in dire Need of Our Attention and Consultation.
