VOICELESS tackles the controversial pro-life vs. pro-choice debate with conviction and compassion, and presents that the true choice is one the church must make. Necerato and Migdon have walked a fine line with making an impactful film that doesn’t alienate, but rather starts a conversation, and in fact has been praised by pro-choice viewers.The winner of multiple awards, Voiceless has been honored as Northeast Film Festival’s Best Feature and People’s Choice for Best Feature Film and Best Feature Film from the California Independent Film Festival.
VOICELESS hits theaters October 7, 2016. New theaters being added daily.

it is not a traditional theatrical run film. The producers are partnering with
individuals, organizations, and movements to secure theater locations by
guaranteeing ticket sales in order to have the film booked. Their prayer is
that this movie will make it into EVERY American theater with a message that is
needed, wanted, and timely. The Supreme Court’s reversal of a Texas law
requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges and abortion facilities to
meet basic health standards is a signal to the pro-life movement to push for
social change in other ways, says Jason Jones, co-executive producer of the new
pro-life film VOICELESS.
founder of Movie to Movement, a non-profit organization that uses the medium of
motion pictures to engage audiences on the nature and dignity of the human
person, is working with the VOICELESS film team to add 100 screens to the
release of new pro-life film VOICELESS which debuts in theaters nationwide on
October 7 and sees the recent court ruling as a major catalyst which will
prompt pro-life organizations, churches and individuals to action.
my best viewing the movie via a link provided by the publicists of this film, but
my system kept having to buffer the content, which made for a somewhat blotchy
playback. In premise, the arguments remain much the same as when the pro-life
movement first began. There is no new science, per se. So really, the catalyst
for this film lies chiefly in the recent court-rulings mentioned above. And
while I support the rights of the unborn children, and do not wish to harm the
pro-life movement, my task was to review the movie.
there were some moments of comic relief (chiefly at the beginning of the movie),
for the most part what I saw were a series of contrived situations in which the
hero (Jesse) is placed in crisis situations, is almost at the end of his rope
(in one scene, almost literally) and then things work out. The most realistic
message seemed to be coming from his wife, who is refreshingly authentic in
dealing with life issues that aren’t neatly tied up in boxes with ribbons on
(I’m led to believe) on location in Philadelphia,
there is a distinctive lack of color. It’s a very bleak film, dealing with a
very disturbing reality. But the intentions of the media group, to bring this
film out in light of the recent court rulings, is a blessing in and of itself.
of 5 stars for a movie dealing with a topic that needs to be understood.
