Eliza Hittman directs Sidney Flanigan, Talia Ryder and Théodore Pellerin in this drama where a pregnant teen has to navigate the bureaucracy, costs and perils of crossing state lines to terminate an unwanted pregnancy.
A sensitive and immersive procedural drama about modern day abortion in America. Really memorable lead performance by Flanigan who evokes a lot with very little dialogue. Having said that – I could tell this wasn’t for intended me as every man is pitched as an active sexual predator except the bus station employee who gave them directions. I’m a big boy, I can take it… but every… fucking… man? Made very much for its echo chamber which maybe limits its scope to change the current political landscape.
