review by
Mike Haberfelner

Michelle (Jennifer Plotzke) is taking her sister Debbie (Shara Ashley Zeiger) to a yoga retreat, the Red Lotus - even if Debbie's the last person to be into yoga. Only it's not really a yoga retreat, it's an abortion clinic ... and the year's 2020, Roe v. Wade has been overthrown, "planned parenthood" is considered a crime now, and abortion doctors work in secret nowadays. Now Michelle has been impregnated by her boyfriend (Jared Prudoff-Smith) and wanted to tell him on the very day he dumped her - and she doesn't feel she's up to raising a kid on her own. But in times like these it's no longer up to you if you're having your kid or not, and there are forces at work trying to make sure a woman does not have control over her own body and life ...

 

What could have been a blunt "message movie" turns out to be quite a powerful short that uses elements of dystopian science fiction and conspiracy thriller to tell its well-crafted story that avoids just giving simple answers, and that's carried by a very subtle directorial effort and strong performances by all involved.

Well worth a look, and not su much for its message but because it's just a good movie!

 

And if this has gotten you at all interested and you happen to live in NYC, The Red Lotus premieres on May 31st 2018, 7 pm, at the Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue, New York, NY 10003.
