ABORTION MOVIE WINS TOP PRIZE AT CANNES

From the story: The film evokes the big themes of personal freedom and political repression through a wrenching story about a girl's illegal abortion in communist-era Romania. The film’s celebratory portrayal of legalizing abortion in Romania misses some big points such as 600,000 deaths in the first year it was legal, and later an underpopulation problem.
