4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days

4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days ★★★★½

Whether abortion is legal or not, it will be sought out, and this movie explores the horrors which women have to go through in order to achieve it. Alongside this, it shows differing levels of hypermasculinity in its two main male characters - one showing his abuse of power in a clearly dominant way, and the other being far more subtle and seemingly-innocent but ultimately achieving the same goal. My only complaint is that while the movie showed the terrible world of black market abortion, it did not nearly really explore Gabita's desire for an abortion. Without this, it is not likely to change any pro-life viewer's minds on the legality of the topic. Instead, it is preaching to the choir, although in a powerful and heartbreaking way.

4.25/5.00
