June 24th

A drama that explores a families conflict over US abortion rights.
3/5

Review

Jenn Sullivan’s short drama film tackles the sensitive and divisive issue of abortion against the backdrop of the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade. Written by Jef Figallo and Ashley Landrieu, the film tells the story of a family torn apart by the Supreme Court’s decision, as husband and wife Sam (Jef Figallo) and Theresa (Steffanie Graves) grapple with opposing views on the matter and the impact it has on their family dynamics.

While the acting performances might not be electrifying, they are fair and serve the material adequately. Moreover, though the technical aspects of the film do not reach the level of cinematic excellence, they are competently executed, allowing the story to take centre stage.

What makes the film impactful is its willingness to take a strong and clear pro-choice stance, depicting the emotional complexities and real-world implications of the ongoing political debate surrounding reproductive rights. The drama touches on important themes related to female empowerment and bodily autonomy, making a powerful statement about what’s at stake for millions of people across the United States.

In conclusion, despite its limited technical achievements, Jenn Sullivan’s short film is a moving and thought-provoking meditation on the consequences of the Supreme Court’s action for individuals and families alike. By taking a firm stance on a politically divisive issue, the film serves as an important reminder of the courage and conviction required to fight for what you believe in.
