One night, after partying with hookers in his Manhattan hotel suite, Devereaux sexually assaults a terrified housekeeper (Pamela Afesi).This leads to a near-immediate arrest and humiliating police proceedings (fair warning, you'll witness the rotund Depardieu undergoing a strip search), and the banker is sentenced to house arrest.For the past few years, Worthy's office has been slowly wading through sexual assault kits recovered in 2009 from a Detroit police storage facility.They contain DNA and other evidence from rape cases, but a majority of the 11,000 kits never were tested in a lab.Idiosyncratic filmmaker Abel Ferrara ("Bad Lieutenant," "The Funeral") takes on the provocative 2011 case of former International Monetary Fund managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn in the barely veiled drama "Welcome to New York." This frank, unruly look at sex, privilege and power unfolds so much like real life that it proves an intriguing and strangely immersive experience.Gérard Depardieu, in one of the most uninhibited recent screen appearances by any notable actor, plays George Devereaux, a super-rich, sex-addicted financier — and prospective president of France — whose appetites are as outsized as his waistline.


I have seen every episode at least five times, I organized girl’s nights when both movies premiered, my comforter is still Calvin Klein Bamboo Shoots (same one as Carrie in her old apartment,) and at one point, the show’s opening song was my ring tone.

"And because of what those individuals have suffered, their bodies are crime scenes.

They're living, breathing, feeling crime scenes from which doctors and nurses collect evidence in a sexual assault collection kit."The legislation — which Worthy described during a press briefing as a collaboration between police, prosecutors, health care organizations and victims' groups — would provide processes and timelines for rape kit pickup and testing.

Carrie wrote about her dating experiences, her boyfriends, and men she loved on every single show.

What’s funny is, she never seemed to have any problems with any of the men she wrote about getting upset about it, calling her and saying, “People who know us know you’re talking about me! I know the real you,” or “You’re making me look like a real jerk.” Now, maybe Carrie did have some problems, but the show never chose to reveal them by creating a storyline with that issue.
