Eschewing polemics, Hittman presents a heartbreakingly straightforward account of Autumn (Sidney Flanigan), a Pennsylvania teen whose home state’s requirement of parental consent for abortions necessitates a clandestine journey to New York City to terminate her pregnancy. With minimal funds and no responsible adults on their side, Autumn and her cousin Skylar (Talia Ryder) must navigate the metropolis, relying only on their instincts and trust in one another. Two screen debuts for the ages, with Flanigan’s halting answers to the Planned Parenthood questionnaire that inspires the film’s title a scene of unforgettable vulnerability and release.
