The Tale ★★★★★

the worst part is that it took jennifer so long to even realize what had happened to her.

a short, brave, important film that made my heart race and palms sweat even though i knew, and have felt, what was coming.

like jennifer, i didn't think it was was it actually was at first, unlike jennifer i was 21. like jennifer, i initially believed i was enjoying it, unlike jennifer it was oral, not vaginal. like jennifer, it took someone else opening my eyes to realize it was rape, unlike jennifer it didn't take decades for me to realize it.

from false memories, coercion, assault, confronting it head-on, to documenting it -- jennifer fox is one brave and wonderful woman.

i feel heartbroken for the both of us, but devastated for her.
