Gossip (2000)

Film details

Synopsis

Thriller. Three students share an expensive loft-style apartment: a girl, Jones, an intense young man named Travis and their wealthy colleague Derrick, the owner of the loft. Among other subjects, the three study journalism under the tutelage of Professor Goodwin, who urges his students to debate the fine line between hearsay and truth. When Jones hears that a new student, Naomi, is apparently spreading rumours about her, a plan is hatched in which unsavoury gossip will be in turn spread about Naomi's sexual behaviour, to see how far the slander travels. Unfortunately Naomi, who has spent an evening with another student, Beau, but is unable to recall exactly what happened, comes to believe that she might have been raped, and the 'slander' takes on a life of its own.
