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.

Perfectly knowing that a lot of people would get inspired, personallyrelate or cite examples from this film, there is no reason to deny thatexcept for the rape victim Sarah Tobias, all the other main characters,even attorney Kathryn Murphy, are written blatantly as stereotypical asthey can be. Same can be said about the atmosphere, circumstances andthe participators of the incident. The screenwriters have played onlyone masterstroke by showing the whole rape incident much later in aflashback, which perhaps helps us to relate better to the victim'semotions.

However predictable and blunt the film appears in its formation, itdelivers it message right with the help of the outstanding (andOscar-winning) performance of Jodie Foster. She just plays her partwith so much passion that sometimes it would seem that she really ISthe victim. I wonder how she could get such a driving force for herrole which is so powerful and vengeful, yet so helpless and fragile. Itis the performance of her career, Clarice Sterling doesn't even come incomparison. Her job in this film should be treated as educationalmaterial.

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 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.
