Please give us your feedback after you've seen it, BG.

Oh...and the bit no one is talking about from my OP...mandatory binding arbitration. The woman's case was pending when they made the film, but that was over a year ago. The case was heard. She lost. Perhaps with cause, perhaps not. The movie alleged that KBR "lost" her rape kit. So I'm not surprised if there is insufficient evidence to go to trial. (KBR apparently also locked her in a shipping container, which her congressman seemed to corroborate in the film as he was the one who sent feds to rescue her.)

Regardless of the outcome (or even the veracity) of the rape case, mandatory binding arbitration should be illegal as a contractual stipulation. No one should ever have to sign away their Constitutional rights so they can get a job, or a credit card, or a cell phone. Al Franken (D-MN), in the film, agreed.
