It's About Time
18 February 2015 | by biz-plansSee all my reviews

This movie is very timely, yet long overdue.There is a culture on college campuses that have encouraged violent acts against women for a long time. The first hand testimonials drive home the horror some of these young women endured. The one cautionary tale is the testimony of the Winston accuser, as he was not charged, yet she is allowed to tell her story without being questioned or allowing Winston to speak. Her movie testimony was different from earlier versions of her story. In my opinion, her inclusion cheapens the movie and takes a way from the other powerful statements of violence against women on college campuses. It is almost as if the producers wanted to sensationalize the movie by using a well known incident to drive up interest. The subject matter alone speaks for itself. A must see for all incoming freshman women and their parents.
