From American Family Studios in association with Provident Films
I’ve always been prolife, and I grew up helping out with various prolife causes, and I was interested to watch a movie on the topic.
October Baby is a story of a girl who finds out her mother tried to abort her, a girl who has physical and psychological problems because of that fact, a girl who goes on to forgive all those who have hurt her.
Who it is for:
Those who enjoy a touching movie about family.
I would say this movie is “safe” for kids in their preteens-teens to watch, perhaps with an adult watching with them if they are younger - because of a bit of talk about abortion, and in a vague way, sex.
Quality of the movie:
The acting and overall quality of this movie were very good.
What I liked:
The story was emotional and easy to get into.
I found that this movie presented a unique twist on the prolife message, different from other prolife movies out there.
What I didn’t like:
There was one random scene where the girl mentioned that she was a virgin and acted like it was a bad thing, I found this unnecessary and just out of place.
This was a pretty good movie. If it weren’t for my one negative I would give it five out of five stars, but instead…
… I give October Baby 4 out of 5 stars.
I received this dvd screener from Provident Films free to review. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.
