Even though I'm a Christian, I don't tend to go for Christian films all that much, because the production values are often poor, and the acting and writing lackluster. Most of them are centered around End Times, football, or a "Little House On the Prairie"-type scenario, and that gets old fast. "Sarah's Choice" is a step in the right direction. It's not preachy or looking like it's trying too hard, and the writing and acting are decent. However, I had two major beefs with it.

First of all, Sarah should have peeked over the abyss a bit more--she could have met the mysterious stranger at the abortion clinic instead of the doctor's office. Calling a clinic on the phone didn't have as much punch. Her eventual choice would have been a lot less of a given if she had flirted with disaster.

Secondly, I thought Rebecca St. James was good, and I've been a fan of hers for years, but there's one part where you hear tears in her voice and feel her emotion, but don't see them on her face. It's a weepy scene, so there should be a few waterworks. Don't actors use fake tears sometimes? There's no shame in that--Debbie Reynolds rubbed onions on her eyes when she had to cry in "Singin' In the Rain."

"Sarah's Choice" is a good film. I've seen it twice and each time it grips me, but I just think it could have used a bit more tension.

This is a wonderful film, and a wonderful, often powerful, story. What may seem like a cheeky plot (and there are very brief moments, at times) is surprisingly executed with honesty, understanding, uncertainty, and (as it's title notes) choices. Rebecca St. James makes the amazing leap from singer to actress very subtly, yet carries the same amount of honesty, love and understanding as she does to her music. (You may be surprised by her performance at times, as well.) Overall, this is a well-made film with mostly solid performances, a fine-tuned script, and universal emotion to spare. A solid family pick.

(For the record, the DVD came through the mail alright! Thank you.)

This would not be my first choice as entertainment but it was a good movie none the less. It deals with a topic that many people have strong feelings for one way or the other, and sadly far too many in similar and different situations have to make this decision. This movie does a decent job of showing how hard it is to make the decision and what you may have to deal with which ever way you choose. In the movie Sarah is guided by dreams of her future child and a strict parent so you know what her choice will be, but it also shows her friends choice, and how the situations affect the other people involved. Thankfully the movie does not deal with attacks on clinics and physicians or the tactics used by those with strong feelings on the subject (both sides).

Great film depicting both sides of the consequences of the choice of life over abortion. Showed to my teenage youth ministry and was well received by both boys and girls.

The movie was ok. It built a lot of suspense and had a very dull ending. It should of had more closure. Would recommend.

The movie was encouraging. All situation of the beginning of the a unexpected pregnancy was given. It was nice to see how men do struggle as well and in this movie it turned out good. Would recommend everyone to see it that is too young to make a decision of abortion(that could be any age). I think it will help.

Real life issues addressed. Allows the viewer to hope for a God choice.

This movie is done really well, with a good plot and acting. The plot gets a bit obscure at times in favor of presenting the message - though that's really not noticeable (at least if you don't watch the commentaries, and there are two). Most likely your getting this movie because of the message anyway, so that would actually be a good thing.
