This performance didn't just win an Oscar. It won the hearts of every woman who has ever had to endure the horror of assault and the continued injustice of having to fight against prejudice and a legal system steeped in patriarchy, to be heard. Full Review

Product Description:

Jodie Foster won deserved acclaim for her performance as Sarah Tobias, a hard-living, fiercely independent woman is gang raped in the back of a local bar. She finds herself battling the legal system not once but twice, as she and her attorney Kathryn Murphy (Kelly McGillis) go after her attackers and the onlookers whose cheering fueled and encouraged the assault. Based on a true story which occurred in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Academy Awards: Best Actress--Jodie Foster.

Plot Synopsis:

A film inspired by the notorious barroom rape that occurred in New Bedford, Massachusetts in 1983. An evening at a local bar turns violent when three men push a woman onto a pool table and rape her -- as many of the bar's patrons cheer them on.
When she learns that the rapists have plea-bargained their way into a lesser charge (meaning that the rape never officially occurred), the woman and her lawyer take a novel approach: they prosecute the "spectators" for encouraging the criminals.
