October Baby

Mike & I went to see October Baby this past week-end.  I really would like to recommend it to everyone.

The movie deals with the issue of abortion.  It could've been made in a very judgmental tone, in a way that would cause even more harm.  I don't think it did that, though.  Yes, it is most definitely a pro-life film.  However, I believe it is also tenderly trying to tell women who have already aborted that they are loved and forgiveness is available to them.

I don't want to tell you the whole film but a part that blew me away was actually a clip shown after the movie was over.  It is an interview with the actress that played the abortive mother.  As it turns out, she had a secret of her own and she found healing from this movie herself.  Here's that clip...

Wow! God is so awesome!

In case other people are looking, the link goes to the movie's site, but the video queued was the trailer. Across the bottom is a list of other video's, so I found the clip you were referring to..."Shari's Story".

I wish I could go see this movie, but it doesn't look like it's coming to Gillette. I also checked on the movie's website to see where it's playing, and Casper was the only town in the entire state. That makes me very sad. I will be waiting for this to come out on DVD.
