The defense are trying to make it out that the victim "was asking for it", that "she wanted it", "she likes it rough", "she was drunk/high", "she was dressing provocatively", etc. If that's not gaslighting, I don't know what is

There is talk of drug use multiple times & an admission of being a current user bit it's never shown. Grass found in a rape victim's system after the rape is discussed as hurting the case.

Gang rape by 3 men on top of a
pinball machine. Very graphic, leaves very little to the imagination. Long scene.

A man who not only witnessed the gang rape but cheered it on, goads the main character later on when running into her at a music store. He pulls his truck out, not letting her leave while he continues goading her with comments about the rape. After a few minutes she rams her car into the side of his truck over & over again, causing injuries to both.
