Death and the Maiden 1994
Fifteen years ago, in an unnamed South American country, Paulina Escobar (played by Sigourney Weaver) survived arrest, interrogation, and inhuman torture at the hands of her country's former fascist dictatorship. The fascist government is recently fallen as the film opens, and Paulina's husband Gerardo (Stuart Wilson) is preparing to investigate the human rights violations of the old regime. One stormy evening, Gerardo's car gets a flat near their seaside home, and he is given a ride home by Dr. Roberto Miranda (Ben Kingsley). When she hear's Miranda's voice, Paulina becomes convinced that he is the man who repeatedly raped her during the torture sessions, and she takes him hostage. Although Miranda protests that he is not the man, and Gerardo believes Paulina is crazy, Paulina insists that Miranda make a full and sincere confession of his crimes, or she will kill him...
