This film is a completely moving piece of cinematic empathy. It deals with the hardships like having an unexpected pregnancy when, medically, it is considered a “geriatric” pregnancy. Then it deals with getting the prognosis that there is a very high chance that the child will be born with Down syndrome. Add to that the monumental stress of being presented the option for abortion. All of this is an overwhelming amount to deal with in private, but nothing is private when you are a public figure. Astrid is a comedian, so there are some comedic moments mixed into the tense atmosphere to create some levity between the dire drama. This film will take you on a moralistic roller coaster ride that will make you question your own choice if put in a similar situation. The film manages to walk the tightrope between pro-choice and pro-life views so well that each opposing side will be able to understand and empathize with the opposing sides.
