Lots of people rightly saying that Vivian is the least interesting protagonist in this story, but I gotta say it feels actively dangerous to introduce a student coming forward about a rape at the end of the movie and resolving it in ten minutes!! Like, is that not when every person in power is going to leverage that to protect their star athlete who they've appointed to represent them to the entire state and just handed $10,000 to? They'll suspend people over stickers but we just have to believe they've seen the light on this? We know they don't listen to their female students! Like, keep it fluffy and surface-level or dig into it and make the whole movie about that, but don't pretend like these kids can handle something this intense when a few minutes ago Vivian was conflating feminist revolution with her parents' divorce.
