First Trailer Out for Gosnell Movie

 

After interference by Hollywood, tech companies, and the courts, the creators of a movie based on Kermit Gosnell have finally released the first trailer.

A 2014 grand jury report accused Gosnell of killing hundreds of newborns over the course of decades in Philadelphia. He was ultimately convicted of three counts of first-degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter.

The movie was directed by Nick Searcy (Justified, From the Earth to the Moon), produced by Phelim McAleer and Anne McElhinney, and opens Oct. 12. The filmmakers were thrown off Kickstarter and most of Hollywood closed their doors, apparently due to the anti-abortion subject matter. The film was also blocked by the judge in the Gosnell trial, but that issue has since been settled.

What do you think, Ricochetti? Will you catch it in the theaters?

    I am not advocating, I am predicting. (I doubt that many PP folks read Ricochet posts.)

    The phrase is about not worrying about tomorrow. Today has problems of own.

    We don’t know if there will be protests. I’d like to think it will be seen.

    Gee, given the reflexive opposition to any discussion, coverage or cultural attention to Dr. Kermit Gosnell, you’d almost think the left realizes that support for abortion entails protection for gruesome infanticide.

    I donated to the GoFundMe effort ( don’t think it was technically that but the equivalent). Will probably end up either buying a DVD, or purchasing the download. I suspect it might be hard to find on the usual options like Netflix, Amazon, Apple TV.

    We’ll see.

    It is IndieGoGo. I believe I’ll be getting a DVD copy once availability, as a contributor perk. I’ll buy a ticket if it shows up on a big screen in the area.

    I don’t remember if I get a perk or not.  Either way I will find some way to watch.

    We lost the war when we allowed the entire concept of “hate speech” to gain a foothold.

    There is only Free Speech, or Controlled Speech.

    I’m glad it’s finally coming out.

    I also bought Ann and Phelim’s book. She says that writing the book made her pro-life, as she realized the depth of the horror and the complicity of the government.

    Gosnell wasn’t discovered because of the illegal abortions or the dead women — it was a drug investigation into illegal prescriptions he was writing.

    The investigating officers were horrified at what they saw in Gosnell’s “clinic” but not even sure that it was abnormal when it came to abortion because it all seemed so matter-of-fact to everyone working there to have babies’ feet in jars and dead babies in the freezer.

    I am also a IndieGoGo supporter, so I hope I get whatever perks I signed up for at the time. But mostly I hope the film will be seen. And I’ll try to get to see it if I can.

    It will change some people’s hearts, and that is the goal.

    As did I. Very proud to say I was a small part of the group effort.

    I might buy a ticket just as a show of support. But no, I don’t want to see this. Yuck.

    You haven’t lived until you see the interview with one of the females who interviewed him in prison and he began to hit on her. A real charmer.

    Andrew Klavan is credited with co-writing the screenplay. Anyone who has seen Shock to the System, for which he also wrote the screenplay, should be looking forward to this film.
