    Subject: authentic and frightenly real
    Date: Jan 6, 2005
    Sender: sarahPrevious | Next

    the character development and demonstration of how a woman faced with a crisis pregnancy goes to all extremes was so authentic and frightenly real. I volunteer at a crisis pregnancy center and this film showed the situations that so many women are faced with today in every culture. The rejection and jeer recieved from both friends and family, the ambiguity about how life will continue, the rash decisions that one makes due to their surrounding circumstances, the desperate cry for help, the hope for something better, the desire for life- a better life-not only for oneself but also for her unborn child, the extremes that people take to remove themselves from their life situation; all these things are captured beautifully by the writer, the producer and the actors. Brilliant job. this film will evoke much discussion and debate in acedmeia world about social justice,poverty,and economy; from the spiritual realm about family, drugs,and crisis pregnancies; from the politcal world about money, drugs, and policies. Again brilliant job to all, i hope to see more of your work at this level.
