I just got back from the movie. I hadn’t seen the documentaries but I think the movie is worth seeing and supporting. Here are two links about it.

These both are slight spoilers, so if you don’t know or want to know anything about the movie before you go, maybe you don’t want to read them. But they are interesting and may even get you to go and watch it if you hadn’t intended to. First is about the producers of the film and how it came about:

The second article is about the people who were involved in exposing the general lack of press coverage of the trial:

Probably anyone who has been reading this thread will know about the main plot of the movie anyway, and these articles aren’t very long, so I hope some will take the time to read them.

“Gosnell” Movie Profiling Serial-Killer Abortionist Stays in Top 20 Despite Censorship

National Rachel del Guidice Oct 29, 2018 | 8:47AM Washington, DC

The movie about Kermit Gosnell, the late-term abortionist in Philadelphia who went to prison after being convicted of the murder of three babies, briefly cracked the Top 10 at the U.S. box office but also continues to face what its producers call censorship.

“We have been banned, blocked, and attacked,” Phelim McAleer, who co-produced “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” with his wife, Ann McElhinney, said in a statement Friday to The Daily Signal.

“The mainstream media refused to review the film despite a national release of a movie about a subject [abortion] that is a major political issue,” McAleer said. “NPR refused our advertising, Facebook has blocked our ads, and theaters yanked our film, even though it was a success.”

“Gosnell” has taken in an estimated $3.2 million and was on 467 screens as of Sunday, according to Box Office Mojo, which placed it unofficially at No. 18 among all movies in theaters.

The movie opened Oct. 12 and was the No. 12 film that weekend, after hitting No. 10 for one day.

The movie tells the true story of Gosnell and how his 30-plus years as an abortion doctor ended in a case alleging multiple murders at his clinic, dubbed the “house of horrors.” . . . .

It is still showing. We are going to go again tomorrow (I want to support such artists).

You will probably catch something you missed the first time. There was a lot of information to grasp. I had also thought about seeing it again. I haven’t checked if
it is still showing here or not.

Just saw it. Most definitely worth seeing.
