Watch this riveting film for Jodi Foster's and Kelly McGillis's powerful performances as a gang-rape victim and the Assistant D.A. who prosecutes her case. Lauded when it was released in the late '80s, it's message remains relevant decades later.

Great performance from Jodie Foster!

Excellent and powerful theme. Lead character role is performed very well by Jodie Foster. I am not sure if the support cast did not do justice to their roles or if Jodie over shadowed everyone else by her stupendous portrayal. Apart from Jodie Foster, nobody else stood out. I thought Kelly M's (DA) role did not get enough lift.

One of the most underrated films, THE ACCUSED is an important watch. It is not entertaining per se, but it is eye-opening. This film isn't just for those who like courtroom drama or those who yearn for a just world. No, instead I highly recommend THE ACCUSED to everyone.

This movie was very good, even though the subject matter was disturbing. Jodie Foster did a very good job in projecting emotions that her character had to deal with. Also I seen that the people that should have had ber back didn't step up at first to help her. And it took some prodding to get the assistant D.A. to prosecute all that were there during that awful event. Thank God that justice prevails!!

Good film. Jodie Foster performed very well. I could see where a role like this could be easily over-acted but she showed the right amount of emotion in the right places.

Great, great movie but obviously, disturbing because of the subject.

Very good acting from Jodie Foster. Subject matter is not easy, but movie did a good job in presenting the nuances of the discourse.
