Sexual assault on college campuses is an unsettling reality that women continue to face daily. While few actually come forward after an attack, the “system” rarely brings final justice. And too often rapists are given special treatment because they have a “promising future in athletics.”
In MFA, Francesca Eastwood plays a young art student struggling to find inspiration. After a date leads to a violent rape, she reports her attacker but finds redress is not forthcoming. So instead, she confronts the rapist herself, which turns out to have deadly repercussions. As a vigilante is born, she finds her inspiration in an unlikely place.
MFA premieres October 13. Watch the trailer below.
