October Baby, based on the true story of Gianna Jessen, opens in theaters March 23. Jessen is the survivor of a failed abortion attempt. I first learned of her back in 2008, when the Wall Street Journal (of all things) ran her story. That was the year Barrack Obama ran for president; here’s what I wrote back when.
Tim Challies has written a review after seeing an early screening. He was “pleasantly surprised” at how much he enjoyed it. Tim reviews the film, and also analyzes the challenge facing any and every Christian film.
You could watch the trailer at challies.com, but why not click over to Gianna Jessen’s blog and watch it there. There’s a trailer for the film, and also a behind the scenes sort of thing with Gianna.
