Never Rarely Sometimes Always

Watch trailer

17-year-old Autumn is pregnant and knows she wants an abortion, but the conservative laws in her hometown in Pennsylvania make it almost impossible. A strong and important film about the lives of young women in today's USA.

Although Autumn has no doubt she wants to have an abortion, in the small Pennsylvanian town where she lives, the system isn't set up to help her at all. The mandatory counselling for pregnant women is in the hands of Christian "pro-life" organizations, and the federal law states that her parents need to give their consent to the abortion. Autumn decides to confide in her cousin Skylar, and together they run away to New York to carry it out the there.

Some films are able to address societal issues in such a naturalistic way that one forgets their explosive political implications until after the film is over. While watching, one is completely absorbed in the action and characters. Never Rarely Sometimes Always is one of these films. It dives into a heated political debate in the United States, but it is first and foremost a gripping and extremely well-made drama, with characters and actors that one remembers long afterwards.
