Inseparable best friends and cousins Autumn and Skylar precariously navigate the vulnerability of female adolescence in rural Pennsylvania. When Autumn mysteriously falls pregnant, she’s confronted by conservative legislation without mercy for blue-collar women seeking an abortion. With Skylar’s unfailing support and bold resourcefulness, money to fund the procedure is secured and the duo board a bus bound for New York state to find the help Autumn needs.
User Reviews: The movie’s title is a very innovative one, I knew this movie was going to be about abortion but that title didn’t make sense to me until the middle of the movie and the scene was really raw and powerful. These are the kind of movies only a woman could make, its tough for a man to understand the bond between two women, the oppression they face from a patriarchal society and the ugly entitlement men feel over their bodies.
Eliza Hitman wasn’t interested to preach to the audience, she wisely ignores it and rather chooses to hit the raw nerves of anti-choice men and misogynists. Autumn (Sidney Flanigan) is shamed at the start of the film, discouraged to abort her one child, her own state doesn’t allow her to make her own decisions on her body, her employer doesn’t allow her to take a break when she is unwell, helplessly watches her cousin get preyed by predatory men and also faces cash shortage but in-spite of all this she bravely aborts her fetus with the help of her cousin Skylar (Talia Ryder).
Though Autumn is the protagonist of the film, we all would relate more so with Skylar. She sticks by her cousin no matter what and even undergoes great sacrifices to help her. This movie is a must watch by all and a great reflection of a male dominated society.
