While it is true that stories about rape victims are probably difficult to tell well, I'm still appalled that this movie got made and got any kind of distribution. I saw this at the Tribeca Film Festival and wanted to walk out because it's unenjoyable, because the shock value is just for pure shock and the third act of the story is utterly ludicrous. The film is totally cliched in parts and then tries to be shocking and original in others but comes off as laughable and ridiculous. I don't want to spoil anything for people who do want to see it regarding the ending, but believe me when I say, don't waste your money. If you want to see a story that makes you rethink things, see Talk to Her or something else, this is a cold, unmoving piece that oversimplifies everything, and while some unejoyable and disturbing films actually makes you think or you get something out of it, this is definitely NOT one of them.
