I Was Lorena Bobbitt

(Drama) Lorena Bobbitt made tabloid headlines when, after enduring years of abuse by her husband, she cut off his penis with a knife in 1993. Now a powerful crusader for women’s rights, she tells her story for the first time in this award-nominated movie—to set the record straight and to provide hope and help to victims of domestic violence everywhere.

Pitch Perfect: “Lorena Bobbitt became globally famous for an infamous act, but very few people knew what drove her to commit it and what she’s done since then. That’s why we believe this powerful, award-nominated TV movie telling her story from her own perspective for the first time will have worldwide appeal.” —James Durie, Head, Scripted, Cineflix Rights

Key Cast: Dani Montalvo, Luke Humphrey
