Rosario DawsonNew York (ANI): Actress Rosario Dawson plays the most controversial role of her career in new film "Descent". The 27-year-old plays a promising college student who becomes determined to seek revenge after a dreadful act of violence is committed on her. "This film is about sexual violence and the tunnel vision that comes with abuse and revenge," the New York Daily News quoted her, as saying.

"I've had a lot of experience with this subject. My mom used to work with abused women in a woman's shelter in San Francisco - we lived there for a year, and it [occurred] predominantly in my neighborhood, so I've seen a lot," she added. The film marks the debut of Dawson's friend Talia Lugacy as a co-writer/ director/producer. Our first film was slated to be a comedy," Dawson said. "Descent" was premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, and is being screened at the Village East Cinema.
