Movie Review

AN AUDIO SNAPSHOT REVIEW

Christian recording artist Rebecca St. James stars as Sarah, a twentysomething career-minded woman on the verge of what looks to be a sure promotion. Sarah lives with her boyfriend, an immature young man who's more concerned with his next get-rich scheme than he is with holding down a job responsibly. Then something completely unexpected happens to the pair. They find out they're pregnant. In the office she tells a close friend and the word quickly leaks out. Her colleagues line up to tell her in no uncertain terms what they think she should do: Get an abortion. It's just a blob of tissue, hardly a human being yet. Having the baby will ruin your career. One young woman confides that she once had an abortion and she claims that it wasn't any big deal. But is she really telling the truth?

Sarah has clearly drifted away from any solid spiritual grounding, but she does lend a listening ear to a former pastor and a couple of family members who are ready to present God's point of view. And then the young woman begins having dreams that hint at what the future might look like if she keeps her baby.

What is Sarah to do?

Sarah's Choice delivers a powerful and inspiring look at unwanted pregnancy and dramatically frames both sides of the abortion issue in terms of flesh and blood. By the way, I thought the acting and the script were both solid. Now, while I don't recommend this film for younger children, for teenagers on up, it gets a perfect score.
