I think I would find it disturbing, too. As a woman, it is very difficult for me to watch movie scenes where women are overpowered and abused. I've thought long and hard about watching this movie. I haven't worked up the courage yet. And to be honest, I don't like any realistic "people suffering" movies. I have watched very few war movies. I did watch Platoon. There's no way in the world I could watch Saving Private Ryan. I know it's an excellent movie but my son told me of a scene where a soldier was dying and he called out for his Mom. I cry every time I think of that. I told my son, through tears, if his Mom could have heard him, she would have swam the ocean to get to him. I'm just very sensitive like that.
I've watched Sleeping With the Enemy and when they end like that. I can handle it.
And in case anyone is wondering or speculating, no I have never been raped or abused. I'm just very empathetic.
