Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault
For Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, we’re adding Speak to the Let’s Talk Public Health Movie List. Speak tells the story of teenager Melinda Sordino. Before the start of her freshman year of high school, Melinda attends an end-of-summer house party with her friends. While at the party, she meets a senior. They spend time together, talking and dancing. The night almost seems magical, until it turns into a nightmare for Melinda. She calls the police to the house that night, busting the party. But she leaves without reporting what happened to her. As students flee the party, Melinda’s friends find each other and drive off without her, leaving Melinda to walk home alone, disheveled with her shoes in her hands.
