Drama: A woman sets out to put men who assault intoxicated women in their place, including those who attacked and didn't believe her classmate and lifelong friend several years ago.

Cassandra "Cassie" Thomas (CAREY MULLIGAN) is a 30-year-old woman who lives with her parents, Stanley (CLANCY BROWN) and Susan (JENNIFER COOLIDGE). Once a promising med school student, she dropped out after something happened to her classmate and childhood friend, Nina Fisher, and now works in a coffee shop for Gail (LAVERNE COX).

Unbeknownst to any of them, Cassie spends many evenings picking up men in bars while pretending to be drunk and then putting them in their place once they're exposed for trying to take advantage of drunk women. Not surprisingly, her view of men isn't great, and she's initially suspicious of a former classmate, pediatric surgeon Ryan Cooper (BO BURNHAM), when he happens to stop by the coffee shop. But while she lets her guard down enough to start falling for him -- and vice versa -- his presence and then comments about some other former classmates of theirs spurs on a need for her to avenge what happened to her friend.

And thus, she sets out to meet -- under false pretenses -- former classmate Madison McPhee (ALISON BRIE) and Dean Elizabeth Walker (CONNIE BRITTON) -- neither of whom believed Nina's allegations about being raped while drunk by Alexander "Al" Monroe (CHRIS LOWELL) who's now a doctor and about to get married soon with Joe (MAX GREENFIELD) as his best man. And then there's Jordan (ALFRED MOLINA), the lawyer who got the charges against Al dropped.

As Cassie puts her plan into motion, her actions could potentially jeopardize her budding relationship with Ryan who's still unaware of what she's been doing and is now plotting.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
