I didn’t know until today that Kevin Spacey had a trial run of being on the receiving end of rape allegations in the 2002 film The Life of David Gale. I explicitly don’t mention American Beauty because I was only a child when I fell in love with that movie, and even an adult I struggle to remind myself of the illegal and disturbing nature of the activities in which Spacey’s character engages.

I don’t seem to hate this movie as much as the Internet does.
