Critic Reviews for AKA Jane Roe
One of the most significant figures in the 20th Century is divisive, but it would have been great to narrow the focus to her feelings about that divisiveness and not the people who profited.May 27, 2020 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
It felt good to meet the real Norma McCorvey on-screen in AKA Jane Roe. She was funny, glamorous, queer, and -- ultimately -- honest about all those things.
AKA Jane Roe doesn't necessarily ask the viewer to like McCorvey; rather, the goal, mostly accomplished, is to present a clearer sense of the unlikely personality at the center of this polarized debate.
If AKA Jane Roe is a fascinatingly humanizing tale of the life behind the lawsuit, it also suffers greatly from Sweeney's narrow focus on his subject's theatrical bent and "deathbed confession."
AKA Jane Roe brings us into the battles behind the scenes, and allows us to get to know the woman at the center of it.May 22, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
