Call Jane

A married woman with an unwanted pregnancy lives in a time in America where she can't get a legal abortion and works with a group of suburban women to find help.

Chicago, 1968. As the city and the nation are poised on the brink of political upheaval, suburban housewife Joy (Elizabeth Banks) leads an ordinary life with her husband and daughter. When Joy's pregnancy leads to a life-threatening heart condition, she must navigate an all-male medical establishment unwilling to terminate her pregnancy in order to save her life. Her journey for a solution leads her to Virginia (Sigourney Weaver), an independent visionary fiercely committed to women's health, and Gwen (Wunmi Mosaku), an activist who dreams of a day when all women will have access to abortion, regardless of their ability to pay. Joy is so inspired by their work, she decides to join forces with them, putting every aspect of her life on the line.

"Call Jane affectionally assesses the efforts of underground abortion clinics in the 60s with incredible emotional effect, and Elizabeth Banks and Sigourney Weaver serve as the standouts of a stacked cast." - Loud and Clear

"Anchored by Banks' carefully calibrated performance and plenty of elegantly understated long takes from director Phyllis Nagy, Call Jane uses a light touch to make the abortion experience feel exactly like what it is: normal." - Fox 10 Phoenix

"A clear reminder of how far we've come and how dangerously easy it is to lose it all." - Film Threat
