tw // sexual assault, death

i’m furious at the idea that a movie that was set out to empower victims really just implied that the most powerful thing that woman could have done is died. it makes me sick to my stomach. the film is triggering and the marketing is extremely misleading. this movie treats the female characters quite poorly and the male ones mostly get away with a slap on the wrist. in the minds of the film makers the death of a woman is just a plot device to punish a man. make no mistake this movie is for cisgender heterosexual men. victims and people whose lives have been affected by sexual assailants deserve so much better than this film.
