Overview

Set in Iowa, Betrayed stars Debra Winger as an FBI agent who infiltrates a Klanlike white supremacist organization. Allegedly a woman of intelligence and perception, Winger throws caution and logic to the winds when she falls in love with local farmer Tom Berenger. Much to her surprise Berenger turns out to be the most rabid racist of all.

This is an absolutely stunning, almost unbelievably provocative movie. The story and setting is so seductive and seditious that it might cause the casual viewer to dismiss it out of hand; simply not believing that, today, Americans could really do this to fellow Americans. I found the characters and performances so excruciatingly real that as the story unfolded I became a willing (and at times, unwilling) observer to a form of social darwinism where religious faith, patriotism and race are the prevailing genetic and environmental forces in the shaping and evolution of America. The movie is not perfect. It has some minor flaws and at times seems to suffer from the cinematic equivalent of aerodynamic drag as it piles on scenes and images that amplify and magnify two opposing views of Americans wrestling with what America is and what it should be. Along with Jasper, Texas, Rosewood and Unforgivable Blackness (to name a few), Betrayed is a brilliant and disturbing look into the dark side of faith, patriotism and race as seeds of a hidden civil war.

Berenger plays his best role to date. This film illustrates why the Racist Right never goes away. Most would have you believe they are a bunch of knuckle-scraping morons - if this was the case they'd been gone by now. Berenger plays a charismatic white farmer . The beauty of the film is that it makes you feel that he's the hero and then wham! you find out he is the Klan. It leaves you with many questions. Deborah Winger adds an authentic taste of love, anxiety and the film leaves you wondering who has betrayed her most - the Klan or the FBI.
