On 6 March 1983, a woman named Cheryl Araujo was gang-raped by four men on apool table at Big Dan's Tavern in New Bedford, Massachusetts. A number ofmen in the bar were cheering the attackers on and after the victim escapedinto the street, they continued drinking and joking about theincident.

Ms. Araujo, 21, and all four of her assailants were Portuguese, a majorethnicity in former New England "mill towns" like New Bedford. ThePortuguese community sided with its errant sons, rather than their victim,and Cheryl Araujo was basically driven out of town by the animosity of herneighbors. She was killed in an automobile accident in Florida in 1986,leaving behind two children.

This film was loosely based on the Araujo case. Several of Jodie Foster'sscenes were so powerful they nearly brought me to tears -- specifically, thescene where she confronts lawyer Kelly McGillis in the latter's apartmentduring a dinner party; her courtroom testimony; and the horrifying rapescene.

Kelly McGillis seemed to be sleepwalking through this entire film, with onlya few moments when she roused herself a bit, but not enough to help. Evenso, she appeared more sensitive than the volunteer from the rape crisiscenter, who stood NEXT TO the ER doctor during the post-assault pelvic exam. If I had been on that table, I'd have wrenched a foot out of the stirrupsand kicked her. A woman who has just been gang raped doesn't need one moreperson invading her privacy.

I agree with an earlier poster who noted the difficult roles of the "cheerand clap" trio. It must have been extremely challenging for a guy who hasany sensitivity at all about women to convincingly portray the kind of jerksthose three were. My hat's off to all three of them.

I was appalled by one reviewers comments on this moving stating that arape victim "got what she deserved". NO one Woman or man) deserves tobe raped, violated or harmed just because they were at the wrong place.

This movie is based on a true story, and the actors were very moving.People make mistakes, being a PERSON that may be upset and choose tobehave in a mannor not appropriately, yet when that Person chooses tostop and say NO, then No is it. No, Stop, Don't, these words do notmean, well, I ask for it. Anyone who thinks otherwise, I feel sorry forbecause they are sad, lonely and deprived of self worth.

Jodi Foster Is a great actress and put's all her strength in her roles.She is very talented and she and Kelly M. made this movie. Hopefullythe person that had to endure this horrid act, is going on, withstrenght and success.

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.
