About:
An exploration of rape and its cover-up in a small town.

I previously wrote about the film for Nantucket’s program, saying:
After a teenage girl is raped by members of the Steubenville OH high school football team, a true-crime blogger investigates the social media generated during the incident and discovers shocking details about the crime – including the identities of both perpetrators and bystanders – and her reporting brings national attention to the small town. Powerful and topical in the era of Time’s Up and #MeToo, Nancy Schwartzman’s searing film speaks to an unconscionable culture of complicity and denial about sexual assault not only in Steubenville, but in society as a whole.
