A high school English/drama teacher's viewpoint
6 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a saying among theatre people that "good drama requires a suspension of disbelief." Perhaps this film isn't meant for the more experienced movie goer...perhaps it is meant for the young and/or innocent. I love sharing this film with my high school students. I think it is the best treatment of the abortion issue I have ever seen or read. Of course, it is not a completely accurate portrayal of a college debate, but that is not its purpose. It does clearly demonstrate one sometimes effective debate strategy...tell your opponent he may not be wrong, but that he isn't handling the problem in the best possible way--then offer a better way of handling the problem. If we took the advice offered in this film, we could resolve a great many of our problems with the abortion issue.
