The story of a woman facing a moral dilemma when, deep into her pregnancy, she learns that there are problems with her baby, 24 Weeks avoids cliché and judgment with a tender, multi-faced exploration of choice. Award-winning actress Julia Jenstch (Sophie Scholl: The Final Days) is Astrid, a popular feminist comedian and already the mother of a young child. As she weighs her decision, in addition to trying to determine in her own heart what is right, she also evaluates the impact the babys disabilities might have on her partner and daughter, and fears how an abortion might affect her career in light of her very public pregnancy. Jenstch makes Astrids journey wholly personal, gripping, heartbreaking, and real as she forcefully portrays Astrids gamut of emotions from resolution to fear, certitude to doubt, joy to grief in this powerful, uncompromising drama.
