Sundance Film Review: ‘Trapped’

1 February 2016 10:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In “Trapped,” lawyer-turned-documentarian Dawn Porter (“Gideon’s Army”) chronicles the lives of medical professionals who work at clinics subject to so-called Trap laws. The acronym stands for “targeted regulations of abortion providers,” statutes that opponents say limit access to abortion in the guise of promoting safe health practices. Not as powerful as “After Tiller” or as visually distinguished as “Lake of Fire,” Porter’s advocacy doc settles for a straightforward, somewhat standard presentation, laying out a forceful argument that these laws, though designed to sound innocuous, pose significant burdens to clinics, doctors and patients. The movie is scheduled to open on March 4, two days after the Supreme Court hears a major case on Texas’s current abortion regulations. A ruling is expected in June; the Sundance cut could well require an update by the time the film airs on Independent Lens that month.
