      Good post. One can almost see insurance companies requiring these tests and mandating “the humane option”, or lose the policy and pay costs out-of-pocket. One can also see the immense peer pressure to abort by family and friends.

      Villaneueve is a solid director. I thought Prisoners and Sicario were top notch.

      I finally borrowed and watched this DVD, and–SPOILER–it’s also heartrending that Louise knew her husband would leave.
