Sometimes it is simply impossible for me to look at a movie with complete objectivity.

A definitely pro-life story that will anger those who see no redeeming aspect for this position. For those who do agree with the premise this will be a cause for celebration.

An entertaining and relevant faith-based movie.

Avoids the outright preachiness of the Sherwood Productions films … certainly a good-looking film … too much tell and not enough show.

A film whose poignancy is hard to deny whatever side of the abortion debate you fall on.

Directors Andrew and Jon Erwin, who also contributed to the story, rarely let their film get didactic, instead going for a more low-key approach.

Newcomer Rachel Hendrix grabs attention and sustains sympathy as a lovely yet troubled 19-year-old student determined to unlock the secrets of her past.
March 18, 2012
An apolitical, pro-life parable apt to touch the hearts of audience members on either side of the abortion issue.

A well-intentioned yet hopelessly ineffective drama...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 24, 2012
tries to walk a line between abortion drama and adoption drama. All the wringing of hands in this film are results of cliches we've seen in television and movies for years.

While it's better than most movies of its kind, it's still pretty weak entertainment, though choir members should feel free to sing its praises. Amen.

A couple of scenes - especially one with a cop with a heart - are touching. Depending on your point of view, October Baby does manage to score more than a few points.

Heavy-handed proselytizing trumps genuine emotional impact.

The odds that this has happened in the real world approach those of being struck by lightning and eaten by a shark at the same time. With a winning lottery ticket tucked in your swimsuit.
March 23, 2012
Timed to come out in the middle of a political dogfight over birth control, when candidates tell their supporters that they'll "get rid of Planned Parenthood," October Baby could have hot-button appeal for a certain audience.
