Battered is a portrait of domestic violence in American Homes. A step inside life lived in constant fear of the people closest to you, director Lee Grant explores every angle, from time with the people who have escaped, succumbed to, or continue to live with domestic violence.

MUBI's take

Debunking the misconceptions surrounding domestic abuse, Lee Grant’s powerful documentary sensitively humanizes the staggering statistics of violence against women in American society. Brutalized by their intimate partners, survivors are further harmed by the lack of support from state institutions.
