A Road Trip for Choice: Unpregnant


Unpregnant is a 2020 American comedy-drama film that tackles a serious issue with a surprising amount of humor.

Veronica, a determined 17-year-old played by Haley Lu Richardson, sees her Ivy League dreams dashed after an unplanned pregnancy. Faced with restrictive laws in her home state of Missouri, she convinces her estranged childhood best friend Bailey (Barbie Ferreira) to embark on a road trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she can legally terminate the pregnancy.

The film excels in its portrayal of their journey. Veronica and Bailey are an unlikely pair, but their chemistry builds throughout the film. The comedic moments arise from their misadventures and the quirky characters they meet along the way. However, the film doesn’t shy away from the emotional weight of Veronica’s situation.

Director Rachel Lee Goldenberg skillfully balances humor and drama, creating a film that is both entertaining and thought-provoking. The performances are strong, with Richardson delivering a nuanced portrayal of Veronica’s determination and vulnerability.

Unpregnant is not just a road trip movie; it’s a film about female friendship, resilience, and the fight for bodily autonomy. While the subject matter might be sensitive, the film’s approach is refreshingly honest and avoids feeling preachy.

This is a great watch for anyone who enjoys coming-of- age stories with a twist, or for those who want to see a portrayal of a complex issue handled with both humor and sensitivity.
