This is a very well put together film, with sensitive, realistic, even astute writing, and excellent acting all around. It deserves a wider audience, and credit for dealing with the sociological aspects of a tough subject like abortion in a non simplistic, formulaic, or preaching manner, although it does contain brief scenes providing the religious take on the subject.
But for me, what kept me watching was the authentic portrayal of the gap between two cautiously hopeful, basically good, young people coming together to try to determine for themselves if a child and a union is right for them. His innocent exploration of weather to have the baby or not, is typical of a genuine indecision process not uncommon for an inexperienced, but ethical person, who has been sheltered in their youth by privilege. His soul- searching is extended by her cautious reticence to reveal who she is and her sordid history, while her consideration of having the baby is relevant for the automatic saving factor, blessings, and fresh start unrealistically believed by the naive to be engendered by the birth of a perfect baby, regardless of the circumstances it's born into. That the gap is widened as they come to learn about each other, by the vast differences in their class backgrounds, slowly becomes undeniable even to them. Despite their physical attractiveness, attraction for each other, and their mutual good intentions, they are ultimately unable or unwilling to bridge the social and behavioral gap between his upper class upbringing, advanced education, and extended, but critical, family support system, versus her deprived, multi-faceted abusive childhood that has scared her social development. The film culminates in a tragedy of minor Shakespearian proportions with one of the young lovers falling on the metaphorical knife, and in so doing shows the truly unselfish, good heart of the victimized character, and offers hope that the effects of their deprivation ultimately can be transcended.
It's a good watch, and it rings true.
