Product Description

The tale of three women, played by Demi Moore, Sissy Spacek and Cher, each of whom faces an unplanned pregnancy. The stories take place in 1952, 1974 and 1996, and are set in the same home.

From Amazon.co.uk

Regardless of your opinion on the topic, If These Walls Could Talk is a bold and provocative examination of how the laws and attitudes about abortion in the United States have both changed drastically and remained so much the same. Three women, three time periods, one house: each finds herself in trouble and must face the overwhelming decision about what to do with the unwanted pregnancy.

The first segment is the most powerful, featuring Demi Moore as a young, recently widowed nurse in 1952. With no-one to turn to and with limited financial means, her options are few. Catherine Keener costars as her harshly judgmental sister-in-law. The next piece occurs in 1974 as Sissy Spacek, a mother of four trying to earn a college degree, discovers she's pregnant with her fifth child. Her utterly modern feminist daughter encourages Spacek to get a newly legal abortion, but it's a complex decision. In the final segment, college student Anne Heche becomes pregnant by her married professor. Her best friend, played by Jada Pinkett, is resolutely against abortion and the two wrangle over right and wrong. As the young woman tries to learn about her options, she finds herself enmeshed in the pro-life demonstrations outside the abortion clinic. Cher, who directs this segment (the other two are directed by Nancy Savoca), costars as a doctor at the clinic.

While trying to be even-handed and demonstrating the different choices different women make, the film does have a decidedly pro-choice leaning. Yet the power of the movie is undeniable and it raises significant questions on both sides of the abortion debate, making it an important film for women (and men) everywhere to watch and talk about. --Jenny Brown --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This video shows an extremely realistic portrayal surrounding the controversial issue of abortion. Taken from three different perspectives and times it tacals both anti and pro views. Although a difficult subject to deal with,it has been done so very well. It is informative going back in time when different values were in place and abortion wasn't an option and upto today's availability and choice. This video contains three short films and is an overall well done and accurate piece.

A graphic, realistic representation of a controversial issue. Not for the faint hearted. Although it professes to be impartial one cannot help but conclude, with three unplanned pregnancies, the only happy ending is the vignette in which the middle aged woman gives up university to keep her fifth, unplanned baby. Where abortion has been the path taken in the other two vignettes, the result is violent, bloody death.
Cher's character provides a very small advocate for the other side but this is minimised and the film, on balance is very far from impartial. It is evidently pro-life, while not a bad thing, it certainly isn't balanced. Overall, definitely worth a view if you have a strong stomach. If you have recently had a termination or are traumatised by one in the past, avoid this like the plague.

I attempted to watch this dvd twice. Unfortunately, each time I found I was not able to get into any of the stories I selected. Therefore, my revview is not full (as I have not watched the dvd throughout).
I just did not get a feel for any of the stories, and so started, stopped and went onto the next. Sorry I did not like.
