This movie is about more than rape. It's about societal views of rapeand the objectification of the female in a patriarchal society. Theactual courtroom drama portion is not prosecuting the rapists, but themen who cheered on and encouraged the gang rape of a woman in a publicplace. As you watch the movie, look at the image of the woman on thepinball machine; look at the friend who turned away; the boyfriend whoexpects the victim to "get over it;" the lawyer who thinks it's OK tocut a deal that removes a rape charge in order to get the rapistsbehind bars, without thought for the life of the victim afterward.Society is on trial here.

The Synopsis for The Accused (1988) 720p
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.

The shocking true story of a bar room gang rape is lifted from theheadlines to become, with dramatic license, a serious and troublingstudy of sexism at its worst, when the victim herself is accused of'asking for it'. Jodie Foster offers a courageous performance as thetough but vulnerable Sarah Tobias, whose behavior on the night of thecrime was certainly provocative, but as the flashback re-enactmentshows all too clearly no amount of provocation could justify such abrutal response. Up until those final scenes the film is a well-craftedbut largely conventional topical drama, with lots of predictablebonding between Foster and her conscience stricken attorney KellyMcGillis. But the attack itself, teasingly saved until the final reel,is so graphic and degrading it obliterates the memory of everythingthat happened earlier. The scene is pure exploitation, but it serves apurpose, putting audiences in the same, ugly position as the cheeringonlookers in the bar, who in many ways were even guiltier than therapists themselves.
One of the roughest films ever produced that is pure misery to sit throughdue to its realism and Jodie Foster's striking Oscar-winning performance.Foster stars as a sexual victim who tries to get prison sentences imposedupon the men who cheered on her gang rape at a sleazy roadhouse. Foster isfar from being an angel herself and every little thing in her past seemstocome back and haunt her. A great supporting turn from Kelly McGillis (whoplays Foster's lawyer) just adds to Foster's show-stopping role. Not afilmI love, but a good film that displays the seemingly ungodly cinematictalents of Jodie Foster. 4 stars out of 5.
