Starring Elizabeth Banks and Sigourney Weaver, the film, which is based on true events, will hit the big screen on October 28, the installment’s production company, Roadside Attractions, reported.

Written by Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi, music by Isabella Summers and photography by Greta Zozula, the film examines the social context of the American nation in the 1960s and the rise of the Jane women’s group creating a system to support those who live there do decide to have an abortion, even though the laws still criminalize the practice.

The story springs from the life of Joy, a pregnant housewife whose doctor warns her of the dangers to her life if she continues the pregnancy, while the all-male hospital board refuses to grant her an exemption from strict anti-abortion legislation, review the summary.

Likewise, the film analyzes a time when health care resources to protect reproductive rights were scarce and the barriers the Afro community faces in accessing these options.

The production stands out on the international contemporary scene for bringing to the table such a controversial issue as abortion, because after its approval by the United States Supreme Court in 1973, it returned to the present when the Supreme Court recently decided to invalidate them.

Selected by the Sundance Festival and a similar event in Berlin, Germany, Call Jane includes performances by Chris Messina, Wunmi Mosaku, Kate Mara, Cory Michael Smith, Grace Edwards and John Magaro, among others.
