It is alleged that Kelly McGillis was actually assaulted in real life and that is why she agreed to do the film.

I recall reading that originally Kelly McGillis was asked to do the role Foster played, but decided for personal reasons she would rather be the lawyer instead!
This was one of Foster's first major roles since her time in college. Out of the gate with both barrels blazing, she won an Oscar and Golden Globe for her portrayal of Sarah Tobias. She shortly followed-up with a second defining role... Clarice Starling in "Silence Of The Lambs".
This movie was apparently based on a real-life incident that took place in Massachusetts.

who played the college boy who was one of the rapists is the brother of Jonathan Antin, the famed hairstylist from the show "Blow Out". They REALLY look alike!!
