MOVIE REVIEW: The Accused

RESPECT and SELF CONTROL.

No one ever asks for it and there is ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE to justify a rape. RAPE IS A VIOLENT ACT, A CRIMINAL ACT against a person’s will.

This is very timely with the recent HijaAko issue that is trending. I also just found out that this movie is based on an ACTUAL EVENT – the case of Cheryl Araujo!!

No matter how Sarah is dressed and how she behaved dancing in the bar, it does not justify the three men who raped her and it does not give the other men in the bar the right to encourage and cheer on the disrespectful act.

No one even fucking bothered to stop the fucking violence that is happening right before their eyes. It was so difficult to watch. I was cringing and felt disrespected too. I cannot even imagine how it is to be in Sarah’s position or Araujo! This factor of the movie is equally important. It’s a good way to educate other people. You are an accessory to the crime.

It is important to speak up, do something and act to protect those that are being abused and assaulted. You are equally responsible if you don’t do something.

What’s your stand on this issue? Will you recommend watching this movie?
