Our Guys: Outrage at Glen Ridge torrent.

This film deals with the true case that occurred in Glen Ridge, New Jersey with the graduating class of 1989. Obviously, what the students did to this girl is disturbing and inexcusable. What is also offensive is the attitude of the community, school and parents; the denial and discrimination.

Eric Stoltz is excellent as prosecutor Dan Laurino,who empathizes with the victim (well-done by Heather Matarazzo). The character Ally Sheedy portrays is a detective who used to work in NYC, and is now on the task force, prosecuting the members of the football team who took part in the gang-rape of a mentally disabled student.

There is much denial and deferral of responsibility, the group mentality of "don't make waves" and the accusations that, as an unstable person, the character Matarazzo portrays had deserved, and even asked for, what happened to her. It is the utmost disgrace that American communities like this still react this way.

The next time you see a tragedy in the local news, and a neighbor comments they couldn't believe it happened in his/her neighborhood, chalk it up to the mechanism of denial; the fact that people cannot comprehend such things does not mean they are not happening every day, and that we need stricter laws protecting the disabled. 10/10

Heather Matarazzo was fantastic in this film, as well as "Welcome To The Dollhouse", both of which center around a young girl who's so desperate to have friends and fit in, even at the expense of her dignity. What really made me sick was not only what those football jerks did to that poor girl but the fact that the whole town believed their side of what happened, with the exception of Ally Sheedy, Eric Stoltz and the girl's parents. In the end, however, the truth finally came out and she got the justice she deserved. I think Heather did such a wonderful job in this film. She has a lot of guts to agree to play a mentally challenged girl, and I really admire her for that.

This is one of best films about rape that I have ever seen. I usually do not watch films about rape since Lifetime shows the same, typically-scripted ones with predictable endings. But this one was quite exceptional. Heather was outstanding in her performance, and the writers were firm at portraying the snobby, reckless, middle-class boys as the gods of the sports-oriented school; then there's that outcasted punk-looking guy that supported Ally's character in understanding the town's fascination with the jocks; and the African-American boy whose honesty was twisted into betrayal, leaving him socially and racially outcasted in the town.

I really enjoy the small-town suburbia chemistry because there are places like that around the country, so this film makes you more aware of that, and that no matter how bad people turn against you, it's always best to stick to the truth and to fight for justice.

Rating: 9/10
