Margaux Hemingway makes her film debut as a high fashion model who is violated as much by"the system" as she is by her rapist. Chris Sarandon (FRIGHT NIGHT) plays the low-keyed music teacher who brutally attacks her and forces her to the point of desperation-and revenge. As Margaux's lawyer, Anne Bancroft (THE GRADUATE) gives a brilliant, uncompromising portrayal of a woman who takes on the legal system in an attempt to define the rights of women in this complex and controversial issue. Director Lamont Johnson (A Gunfight) guides the film to its shocking and violent conclusion after convincing the audience that, in some cases, only after a rape occurs does the real horror story begin.

Anne Bancroft puts in a good performance as the district attorney, although the film raises but again does not pursue fully, her potential conflict of interests.
The last scene and its coda are all too convenient and would have been better omitted; they add nothing but just raise further unanswered questions about morality and the law.
The film starts to a very 60’s-70’s ‘arty’ opening sequence and the whole film strolls along at a reasonable pace as it builds the interaction of the three main leads. The rape is actually quite late in appearing but when it does it’s violent and unpleasant, intensified by Gordon’ eerie electronic music. ****** POSSIBLE SPOILER*** The ensuing court case takes an unusual stance [for the time] by not making the disinterested Chris a ‘clear-cut’ victim, as we are led to believe that there was some doubt as to whether Chris might have been actually playing out her sexual fantasies, but some of the rape scene has been cut and this is not so clear anymore as its now all left to the court case. After the rape of her sister, it takes on a ‘Death Wish’ slant which is all too short. ******.
While still intense, the film [ground-breaking in it’s day] has dated and the ending seems rushed and unrealistic but -despite the unsavoury subject, remains entertaining and is deserving of a **** adult rating.
