Mean little film that pretends to say something about rape but panders to the cheap exploitation values of bad thriller films. Margaux Hemingway, a fashion model, makes her film debut playing--what else?--a fashion model. Sarandon is a music teacher who goes crazy and rapes her. He tries to

get little sister Mariel as well, but big sister blows him away with a handy shotgun. She is tried for murder but is acquitted, thanks to Bancroft's legal skills. The elder Hemingway, granddaughter of the famous writer, is absolutely awful. Sarandon, who was excellent as the transsexual in DOG DAY

AFTERNOON, here chooses to match his costar's performance. The real saving grace of the film is Mariel Hemingway's performance. This was her film debut as well, and she shows real accomplishment at a surprisingly young age. Though the film flopped on release and was widely condemned by critics, it

has since been much discussed in the work of feminist film scholars.
