A Q&A will follow the screening.

"An enlightening script, expert ensemble acting and the most revealing film ever made about a young woman's right to choose." — Dwight Brown, National Newspaper Publishers Association

"At once as intimate as a sigh and as urgent as a klaxon, Never Rarely Sometimes Always is an essential film about abortion that arrives at a critical time." — Kimber Myers, Crooked Marquee

"There’s no need to heavily editorialize here; Hittman is an assured enough filmmaker to portray this drama honestly and non-manipulatively, trusting her audience to interpret the complicated heartbreak of Autumn’s predicament without having to explain it to them." — Mary Sollosi, Entertainment Weekly
