Two articles in the post today--the one below, and this piece on the film Grbavica:

Washington Post Article on "Grbavica"

I won't editorialize too much. I haven't seen the film yet, I will keep an eye out for it. That the movie is being shown in Belgrade is encouraging. That the actress herself is a Serb willing to speak out and call for openness and honesty is even more so. We can hope that this will pry Serb society a bit more open. One hopes that scenes of angry mobs denouncing a woman for portraying a rape victim will lead to more than a few reflective pauses.
