Miranda's Victim

Directed by Michelle Danner
U.S. | 2023 | Narrative
127 minutes

It’s 1963 and long before the #MeToo movement when 18-year-old Patricia Weir is kidnapped and brutally raped at knife-point by a man named Ernesto Miranda. Despite intense societal pressures, she is committed to telling her story openly in a court of law to help put him in prison. Trish’s life is destroyed by America's legal system as she unintentionally triggers the creation of the Miranda Warning by the United States Supreme Court, a law that transformed the rights of the accused across the nation and led to the eventual overturning of Miranda’s first conviction in the case. The all-star cast includes Abigail Breslin (Patricia Weir), Donald Sutherland, Ryan Phillipe, Luke Wilson, Kyle MacLachlan, and Andy Garcia.
