(CutMovie.co.uk – Brought to you by Women’s Aid HD version)
In this new short film brought by Women’s Aid–the UK’s domestic abuse charity–Keira Knightley stars in this scene in which she shockingly calls “Cut.”
We are led to a sudden disturbing scene that, in many ways, speaks for itself. I’ve always been an avid fan of Keira Knightley, but this PSA hit somewhere deep.
WARNING: This video does include some explicit scenes of violence against women.
I thought this is something that should be shared that resonates with a lot of people. In particular, if you are affected by this video, I feel that it be important for you to share as well, as something you post or share can just be what some one needs to see in order to seek help.
