Unplanned Is a More Terrifying Movie Than You Think

“But the film Cineplex found itself screening wasn’t designed to spark thoughtful, searching conversations about a divisive subject. As many reviewers have noted, Unplanned is instead best understood as propaganda. The acting oscillates between wooden and overwrought, the messaging is heavy handed, the pacing plods. As propaganda, the movie is effective. It’s a 106-minute a love letter to the anti-abortion movement, a morale booster meant to galvanize believers, particularly as both Canada and the US head into elections.”

Lauren McKeon – The Walrus – July 2019
