Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat


Rain Without Thunder
Directed by Gary Bennett
Orion Home Video 02/93 DVD/VHS Feature Film
PG-13 - theme

Rain Without Thunder (Tax Pictures) is a cautionary tale set in America in the year 2042. Abortion has been made illegal by constitutional amendment. Zealous pro-lifers have developed creative ways to combat what they regard as an insidious crime. "The Unborn Child Kidnapping Act" is a law designed to stem the tide of women leaving the country to obtain abortions. And the Catholic church has taken a new tact in its anti-abortion crusade by raising the "Messiah question." The screenplay by writer and director Gary Bennett is thought-provoking. He has assembled a top-drawer cast including Betty Buckley, Linda Hunt, Jeff Daniels, Austin Pendleton, and others to enact this morality play about fetal politics.
