This is the generation that will abolish abortion

October Baby Hits Theaters Next Month – I just watched a pre-release and have something to say about it.

Many of my friends joke about the perks; I get with my job; backstage passes, lots of free swag, advance copies of books and movies to name a few. I admit that I love the perks, it is nice to be appreciated for the work I do. Recently I received a package in the mail from an upcoming movie that is being released in theatres next month, October Baby. It was an advance copy of the movie and a letter asking me to watch the movie and let them know how I felt about it.

Before I get into my thoughts, here is the trailer for you to check out:

I will admit that I normally cringe when I get a CD or movie in the mail that is supposed to be a great pro-life tool; I am kind of a snob for quality.  Knowing this movie what not shot with a huge budget I was waiting for disaster when I put it into the DVD player.

The last time I was surprised like this was when I saw a pre-release of the movie Bella, one of my favorite movies of all time. October Baby is a great movie with a a great message. So many times you only get one of those two qualities in a movie but October Baby delivered both.  Now you’re not going to get some high tech special effects or big name stars, but what you do get is a good, honest movie that really drives the message home.

I don’t want to give away too much of the plot here but I will tell you that this movie expresses the beauty of life in a powerful, yet difficult way. It takes you through a roller coaster of emotions that I believe will challenge the most staunch pro-choicer. I urge you to invite your friends to a evening at the movies on March 23rd.

Here is a brief description being released by the producers:

“You saw me before I was born.” Psalm 139:16 (NLT)

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 oldest 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 finds that life can be so much more than what you have planned.

Here is a list of theaters it will be opening in: http://www.octoberbabymovie.net/theaterlist

    Hi, I live in WV and would LOVE to see this movie. However, there are no theaters showing here in the entire state. I’m going to try to find the nearest place I could travel to see it, because there is alot more sites than the last showing. I would also purchase the DVD. Does anyone know when it will be released?
