Itching for a good movie? Check out Disgrace

disgraceI hadn’t been to the movies in awhile, so the other day I decided to check out “Disgrace” starring John Malkovich. I highly recommend it. Malkovich plays a professor in Cape Town, South Africa who mistreats women, specifically female students.

He is forced to resign from the university, and goes to spend some time with his daughter in a rural part of South Africa. One day several young men burglarize the daughter’s home, and one of them rapes her.

One starts to wonder if that crime is all that much different than what the woman’s father was doing at the university. That creates a brilliant tension between the father and daughter, and the father and his conscience.
