Though a couple of user reviews panned it, I thought it was a terrific take on the topical issue of sexual harassment. The perp, the victim, and the victim's husband, are all finely drawn, rather than being overblown or unrealistic characters. The director gets a lot out of 95 minutes, good ending too.
