'SARAH' 'WANTS JUSTICE'
on 19 April 2014
'Jodie Foster' delivers a stunning performance as 'Sarah Tobias' a young woman
who lives her life 'her-way'
'Sarah' becomes a victim of a gang-rape at the local bar, 'The Mill' in the games
room at the rear of the bar.
'Sarah' fully expects justice for the unprovoked actions of the three involved in the
'Attorney' 'Kathryn Murphy' (Kelly McGillis) is assigned to the case.
Trouble is the Attorney cannot find a credible witness even though, in truth, there
were indeed many, 'Kathryn' is determined to back her client to the hilt, however
the system initially lets 'Sarah' down as the level of charges are reduced, the
sentences do not reflect the crime.
'Sarah' cannot put the incident behind her, it seems everybody knows, she is goaded,
'Kathryn Murphy' believes the system has sold 'Sarah' short, she decides to pursue
those that had 'Taunted' 'Goaded' 'Cheered and 'Encouraged' the actions of the of
the three rapists,.
Will the system fail 'Sarah' again ?
This time 'Sarah' will take the 'Stand' where she will have to relive the trauma of that
This is a powerful, intense, absorbing and brilliantly portrayed drama, 'Jodie Foster'
remains one of todays finest actresses and fully deserved the 'Oscar'(1989) for best
actress for her role in this '1988' film.
Extra feature - 'Theatrical Trailer'
( Last time I watched this movie was on 'VHS' that was some time ago now even
though I've owned this DVD for several years)
WELL WORTH RE-VISITING
