Ethan and why this movie sucked


I feel what Ethan did was unforgivable. It was bad enough that he didn't believe Caitlin but he even actively partook in harassing her and slut shameing her. He was horrible and I absolutely hated to see Caitlin not only forgive him but also get back in a relationship with him. What the hell?
The core message of the movie was good (and still relevant considering recent things like Steubenville!) but parts of this movie was utter crap.

What I'd like to know is why Ethan seemingly had this sudden attack of conscience in that scene where the crew lured Caitlin into the empty barn and cut off her hair. It's like he did a complete 180 all of a sudden and went from being bound and determined to lead the gang and "teach her a lesson", to all of a sudden realizing they were wrong to do it and decided they should just leave her alone from now on. I don't understand what actually happened to make him just change his mind like that. Of course, later on, Jace pretty much admits to raping Caitlin to Ethan, and that's when Ethan knows for sure Caitlin was telling the truth and tries to make amends. But it seems like a part of him knew the truth all along. I just don't get it.

Yeah the fact she got back together with him after what he did just ruined the whole point of the movie.
