CANCELLED DUE TO MISCOMMUNICATION-FILM IS AVAILABLE VIA NETFLIX

 

"Rain Without Thunder," (1992)  directed by Gary O. Bennett and starring Betty
Buckley and Jeff Daniels. The film is set fifty years in the future from the time of
production. Although the Planned Parenthood v. Casey case is never mentioned
by name, the decision took place in the same year as the film was made and
many characteristics of the society portrayed are clearly a reaction to the growing
possibilities of restricting abortion rights at the time of production. The movie is
presented as a documentary about the Goldring case, a mother and daughter
imprisoned at the Walker Point Center for seeking an abortion outside of the
United States. Although Beverly (Betty Buckley) and Allison (Ali Thomas) are the
main focus, the journalist (Carolyn McCormick) also interviews numerous people
with varying viewpoints discussing the ramifications of the Goldring case and
abortion in general in 2042 society.
