Johnny Belinda (1948)
A doctor teaches sign language to a young deaf and mute woman. Now able to communicate with the people around her, she attracts both good and bad attention from the small Nova Scotia town.
She attracts the attention of a local sleaze, who sexually assaults her. Later in the film, she kills him for attempting to steal her child.
I’m posting about this ‘cause I am sure all my man-hating friends who plot to kill all rapists would be pleased to hear about this.
