The case challenged the system and shocked the nation.
Academy Award. Jodie Foster Best Actress 1989.
What are the limits of justice? Of social responsibility? The Accused takes a powerful and thought-provoking look at human nature and individual moral conscience, and judicial process that treats the victim like the criminal.
Jodie Foster gives a critically-acclaimed performance as the hard-living, fiercely independent Sarah Tobias, who is gang raped in the back of a neighbourhood bar. But that is only the beginning of her ordeal. Now Sarah finds herself battling the legal system, not once but twice, as she and her attorney (Kelly McGillis) go after her attackers and the onlookers whose cheering fuelled and encouraged the assault.
