An investigative and powerfully emotional documentary about the epidemic of rape of soldiers within the US military, the institutions that perpetuate and cover up its existence, and its profound personal and social consequences.

"Repressing its rage to tell an important story, The Invisible War identifies soldiers who are true heroes because they dared to fight for justice."
- Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"Directed with straightforward economy, The Invisible War sheds much-needed light on a very dark secret."
- Ken McIntyre, Total Film
"This means that the violations chronicled in The Invisible War are compounded by a deep and terrible betrayal, which ripples outward from the various branches of the service into the society as a whole. This is not a movie that can be ignored."
- A.O. Scott, NY Times
"Every adult who owes a debt of gratitude to American soldiers should see Kirby Dick's heartbreaking documentary about sexual violence in the military."
- Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"The Invisible War is that rare, issues-driven documentary that is so powerful it's apt to change minds."
- Ray Greene, Boxoffice Magazine
"The Invisible War might be best judged as a piece of activism, in which case it's already succeeding - after seeing the film in April, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta took the responsibility for sexual assault investigations away from commanding officers and put them in the hands of higher-ranking officials."
- Alison Willmore, Movieline
