Rape of Recy Taylor, The (15)

Drama, Documentary, Crime

A documentary about an African-American woman's fight for justice after suffering a brutal rape by a group of white men.

The critical consensus

Quietly devastating documentary about harrowing crime.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 24/05/2018

When Taylor was raped in Alabama in 1944, she refused to be silent. Nancy Buirski’s documentary gives her story a larger, tragic social context.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 24/05/2018

The story of the 1944 gang-rape of a black woman by a group of white men in Alabama cuts through some overwrought telling.

The film’s thesis is fascinating; it just doesn’t come across all that well.
