For anyone that enjoyed Carey Mulligan's performance, check out Wildlife - she plays a different sort of self destructive character opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in an overlooked recent drama.

I liked this movie but it was pretty easy to pick a fair way out that the BF was going to have been involved in the party where her friend was raped. I mean, they all went to school together, it was pretty obvious it would turn out that way. I did find myself thinking what was the cost to society of her bringing him down considering he was a paediatric surgeon and he wasn't directly involved in the incident though was a witness but for the purposes of the movie was good to see him brought down along with the others.

I thought it was a bit too Tarantino for a film that wanted to be taken as a serious commentary on issues of sexual assault but it got the message across. Was a fun watch for a revenge movie but not something I'd hurry back to watch again.

That’s excellent background, wasn’t aware of that. Watched this last night and powerful movie, Mulligan was great….but ….

Not sure why Ryan wanted to link up with her though especially as he was quite aware of her and her friends background when they met in the shop
I think that's the flaw of his character - he saw himself as a nice guy, and therefore it didn't register that he had anything to be ashamed of until eventually confronted, much like every other character.
