Freshman Fall

Freshman Fall

Bethany Rooney (1996)

12 Certificate


Our Score
This date-rape drama adds nothing new to a powerful subject in which a balance between contention and decency is always difficult to achieve. Director Bethany Rooney sets up her freshman tale with every campus cliché she can find to ensure we're behind demure Candace Cameron Bure, even before she is assaulted at a seniors' party. And the devious, sensationalist resolution turns what purports to be a serious study of the aftershock of a terrifying ordeal into a below-average revenge movie.


A student is raped while drunk at her brother's fraternity party, and tries to find a way to bring her attacker to justice. Drama, with Candace Cameron Bure, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Bess Armstrong.
