Films about rape remain some of the most traumatic stories in the medium. In 1988, The Accused got a lot of attention for Jodie Foster’s incredible performance and its approach to legally prosecute rapists. Austin and Eric discuss the impressive way that Foster formed her character, how the film remains very relevant and the ways it doesn’t. More than usual, you can take these two straight white guy’s perspective with a grain of salt, but we would love to continue the conversation.
