Speak

Movie • 2004 • Drama  

Report
Freshman high-school student Melinda has refused to speak ever since she called the cops on a popular summer party. With her old friends snubbing her for being a rat, and her parents too busy to notice her troubles, she folds into herself, trying to hide her secret: that star senior Andy raped her at the party. But Melinda does manage to find solace in her art class headed by Mr. Freeman.
This movie contains 23 potentially triggering events.

There's a lot of focus on the carcass of a turkey that was part of a failed Thanksgiving dinner, and the turkey is somewhat personified.

Oh yes! That’s actually the main plot point of the movie. And it is VERY realistic as far as the acting goes. Definitely a massive trigger, steer CLEAR.
