Did You Know?

As a frame for understanding how often abortions result in live births, Willard Cates, then head of the Abortion Surveillance Branch of the Centers for Disease Control, told the Philadelphia Inquirer in 1981 that 400 to 500 live births during abortion attempts were reported to the CDC annually, and that he believed that there were many more, since reporting a live birth to the authorities was "like turning yourself in to the IRS for an audit." In comparison, roughly 300 people in the US are struck by lightning annually.See more »
Continuity: When Jason is packing his clothes in the hotel before leaving New Orleans, he is speaking to Alana, and the same shot is shown twice of him picking up a pile of clothes that includes a red, gray and white striped shirt. He picks the pile up, puts it in his bag, another angle is shown and then he is shown picking up the exact same pile from the same spot and putting it in his bag again.See more »

Hannah:I have so many unanswered questions, questions I feel but can't even begin to speak because there are no words to express them.
Hannah:Something is missing.
Hannah:Why do I feel unwanted?
Hannah:Why do I feel I have no right to exist?

Fabulous Film!, 31 October 2011
Author: therobinson7 from United States

I highly recommend this film. It is unique and relevant, especially today when Hollywood seems to be simply telling the same stories over and over again in different ways with different actors. This is a movie I'll see again and one that I will own when it's available on DVD. The message of this film is powerful, even life-changing. An eye opener for some, and healing for others perhaps. The quality of production was top notch. The acting was wonderful, not only from the familiar faces but also from the newcomers to the big screen. I understand why the movie is PG-13, but it's certainly not rated that due to inappropriate material, it's due to the more mature story line. I would recommend this film to anyone, we were very impressed.
