British TV Tries to Capture Truth About Domestic Violence

The BBC has put together a five-part thriller about domestic violence just in time for domestic violence awareness month. The TV series, titled Criminal Justice 2, is being hailed as an accurate and moving depiction of abusive relationships.

Criminal Justice 2 takes a critical look at Britain's criminal justice system through the eyes of one individual: an abused woman who retaliates against her abuser. The main character, Juliet, suffers abuse at the hands of her husband, a handsome and respected lawyer. After stabbing him, she lands in the criminal justice system, where she meets much scrutiny. The movie explores questions of psychological and sexual abuse and tries to uncover whether society helps victims of domestic violence regain their sense of self, or whether it makes their problems worse.

I wish I saw thoughtful programs like this on American television more regularly. Would you tune in?
