Call Jane: Advocacy for Legal Abortion in America

Call Jane: Advocacy for Legal Abortion in America

Call Jane A well-meaning but daring tribute to the women who organized in Chicago in 1968 to protect clandestine abortions.

Joy has only a 50 percent chance of surviving her pregnancy, and the hospital won’t make an exception to the abortion ban. Fortunately, the housewife who helps her husband and lawyer write has the cash and the brains to find an alternative.

After her secret abortion, she confesses herself to The Janes at the insistence of the glamorous Virginia. Between 1968 and 1973, this Chicago collective helped women who were forced to terminate their pregnancies. Unlawfully coerced, deliberately “without question” and incapable of helping everyone.

Phyllis Nagy, screenwriter Carol Todd Haynes makes his directorial debut with the finely crafted, elegantly documented Feel Good. With the help of talented actresses like Elizabeth Banks The Hunger Games And Pitch perfect Or Sigourney Weaver Alien And Avatar He wants to point out an under-revealed history to a larger audience.

There are thousands of dumber movie projects. But because of the lack of tension and avoidance of conflict and drama, this good film must rely on the patience and goodwill of the viewer. The lighthearted attitude contrasts with grim current events: The U.S. Supreme Court struck down a national abortion law this summer.
