Edgy and interesting. Great script and acting. Just when you long for a simpler time, think again as you watch how the issue of rape is treated by society in this film. The film makes some interesting statements while not completely siding with the victim. Who's truly guilty and of what?? A very interesting look at 1950.. this is NOT a Doris Day film and is still current in that it makes you think. The cinematography and art direction are quite amazing... watch carefully the opening scene as the lights come on room by room in black and white.. amazing.
