DVD - 2023

Directed by pioneering actress/filmmaker Ida Lupino, the controversial classic Outrage was one of the first Hollywood films of its era to deal with the subject of rape. Ann Walton, a young bookkeeper freshly engaged to her boyfriend, Jim Owens, sees her promising life unraveling completely when, on her way home from work one evening, she is raped. The trauma of the attack shatters her sense of identity and forces her to flee from home in shame. It is a unique and vital film noir that addresses the widespread and unquestioned violence that women face with remarkable sensitivity. In 2020, Lupino's landmark achievement was deemed a "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" work of art and selected for preservation ...in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
