Goofs

It's set in 1969, but the kitchen has a 1988-vintage Telecom push-button wall phone and similar era range-hood. The laminex and cupboard handles are similarly dated. See more »

Gripping and Inspirational
4 November 2012 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Every moment of this short film kept me riveted. At first, I was nervous that it might try to deal with too many issues and sub-plots but my fears were completely unfounded. It was beautifully scripted and the actors played their parts confidently and convincingly. Sets and costumes were authentic and the musical score worked beautifully to support every scene.

For about 105 minutes, I was taken back to Melbourne in 1969, when archaic laws dictated that a pregnant woman didn't have the right to choose what happened to her and when corrupt Police not only turned a blind eye to backyard abortionists but actually encouraged them...for a fee.

The film reminded me that our society needs people like Bertram Wainer, who have the courage to speak out, regardless of the cost to themselves, when others are too scared.
