Storyline

Two students, previously infatuated with each other, meet up again years later at university. They agree to go out on a first date and initially everything seems to be fine. They meet friends at the pub, have a meal and eventually end up at a party with no inkling of the problems ahead. Jamie, after leaving Clare at her flat, gets soaked in the rain soon after heading off and returns to Clare and begs for a place to stay the night. One thing leads to another and they spend the night together. The next day the recriminations start and Jamie is arrested for rape. At the trial two very different versions of the nights events emerge as seen through the differing eyes of Clare and Jamie. The court must decide if this was an innocent misunderstanding or a deliberate rape. Written by Mark Smith <msmith@osi.co.uk>

A well-directed short tv movie, about date rape
11 November 2000 | by secondarymessengerSee all my reviews

What differs between a man and a woman's view on something they share? Well, it seems that everything. As someone once said, there are at least three truths: mine, yours, and the real one. This movie is about a college date rape, and guides you inside the characters minds, listening to their most private thoughts and ideas. Clare is a friend of Jamie's sister. She has had a crush on him since childhood. Finally, in college, they get to go out. And the story goes on, portraying the difference between each side, the evolution of their ideas during that one evening, and even displaying the feeling of everyone around the two main characters. "In Your Dreams" is a very-well built movie that should make you think.
