this is a true story co starring anne bancroft, she plays the role of a woman, married with two young children who on the way home from the cinema with friends is brutally raped by a black man

she struggles home and report the rape, though the police actually think she was having an affair and no arrest is ever made, gerry becomes pregnant as a result of the rape, and with great bravery she and her husband support one another as she carried the baby to term and they make the heart breaking decision to have the baby adopted

spring forward thirty years and that baby barbara ann is now a wife and mother herself who after being diognosed with asthma is asked by her doctor about her family history, of which she dosnt know

she decides to after a lot of heart searching to begin the search for her birth mother, her relationship with her adoptive mother at this time has broken down, her first step leads her to her foster mother with whom she lived to age 8 and from their she learns the tragic circumstances of her conception and tracks down her birth mother

now im not going to say any more as i dont want to spoil the film but it is an inspiring true story, full of pain and hope and as the acting is so good is far superior to other true story films ive seen, im a bit of a true story junkie i must admit, well worth a watch

Belonging, identity, betrayal, forgiveness, choice between two kind of evils - which one is better? And why is it that this choice has to be made? Is it possible to see a happy end? Everything is so close: in everyday life, across the street, in our own perceptions...

I like coming back to this film. It is one of the most precious films I have in my collection.

Triumph, even when much seems to have gone wrong . . . 20 Jun. 2007
By Artist & Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
There are a number of very interesting issues presented in this movie. The first one is the question of what to do when a girl is raped and becomes pregnant. Abortion? If so, the world would have missed the great Gospel/jazz singer, Mahilia Jackson. In this case, it is a cross-racial rape. Barbara Ann's mother felt that giving her daughter up to be adopted by a black family would make it easier for the innocent infant. Then, social services screwed up and 'forgot' about Barbara Ann until she was seven years old, and bonded with a very loving - indeed, saintly - foster mother. So, she was jerked out of the only family she knew and loved to be sent half way across the country to a white Liberal, yuppie couple who seemed to want a child more for 'political correctness' reasons than genuine love and understanding of the child's needs.

One aspect that my wife and I especially appreciated was that the Catholic faith of Barbara Ann's birth family was shown to be very important to them, and it was treated with great respect. Her birth mom was shown to pray before finally making the call that would eventually reunite her with the girl she'd given up years before. Take note, also, that the first time Barbara Ann smiled after leaving her foster mother was also in a Protestant African American church, where a wonderful young teen boy noticed her. They eventually graduated from school, married and had five children!

This is the true story of the life of a little girl who seemed to be nearly irrelevant to the needs of the social system. Every family with adopted children will not want to miss this movie. It is one that will, several times, raise a lump in your throat if you have any empathy for children. Even more important, it is a story of the triumph of the human spirit that will leave you feeling happy you spent the time to watch it!

Naptown rolling reviews 10 Mar. 2008
By T. A. Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I watched this movie yesterday and could not stop crying!!! It was so moving on so many different levels!! Anne Bancroft and Lynn Whitfield are extraordinary as well as Gloria Rueben and Jesse L. Martin!!! I am buying this movie for my collection. What a positive movie that did not placate the roles and effects of what adoption and sometine interracial placements can have on young lives. I was so touched and cannot encourage this movie to be bought.

I remember seeing this movie on TV several years ago and enjoyed it. So when I found it on DVD I wanted it in my personal collection.

It is a story of love, and heartbreak.

Birthright 6 Dec. 2008
By Curious Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This unusual movie could be used as a teaching tool in many types of classrooms, simply because it dramatizes the heartache of rape, the plight of some foster children being taken from a home they know and love but mostly, it is about overcoming all the odds and finding peace.

Of course, in this dramatization, the full circle of birth mother to foster mother to adoptive mother to becoming a mother was brilliantly written, superbly acted and a moving experience for the viewer.

The final lesson would be that no matter what the circumstance, no matter the race, no matter the lost time, a resolution can always be reached to a satisfactory conclusion. A beautiful story, beautifully told.
