Storyline

As the curtain rises, Hannah hesitantly steps onto the stage for her theatrical debut in college. Yet before she can utter her first lines, Hannah-unscripted-collapses in front of the stunned audience. After countless medical tests, all signs point to one underlying factor: Hannah's difficult birth. This revelation is nothing compared to what she then learns from her parents: she was actually adopted ... after a failed abortion attempt. Bewildered, angered, and confused, Hannah turns for support to Jason, her long-time friend. Encouraged by his adventurous spirit, Hannah joins his group of friends on a Spring Break road trip, embarking on a journey to discover her hidden past ... and find hope for her unknown future. In the midst of her incredible journey, Hannah learns that every life is beautiful. Written by Jon Erwin

Trivia

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 »

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 »

Truly every life is beautiful.
31 October 2011 | by Ethan TrawickSee all my reviews

This is a very deep stirring story that was worth every minute of my time. OctoberBaby doesn't throw any message in the viewers face, it just focuses on telling a story on a very emotional topic without pushing any agendas. I'm actually really surprised more directors don't tackle sensitive emotional issues like this to make stories resonate more personally with the audience... The acting seemed so spot on too. The entire cast acted as if that was ACTUALLY their story they were telling and it really made the performances shine through. OctoberBaby contained a very good mix of intense heart wrenching scenes broken up by light hearted comedy and minor romantic scenes. I'd recommend this movie to anyone and everyone as it is completely family friendly in my opinion. So far I've seen it 3 times with a number of people, and everyone I've invited has bawled their eyes out, even my ex-military dad!
