OCTOBER BABY affirms that
Every Life is Beautiful

OCTOBER BABY offers a simple message in a very powerful way.

The film from Jon and Andrew Erwin uses the moving story of an abortion survivor to reaffirm for audiences – scene after scene – that
Every Life is Beautiful.

On the cusp of October – Respect Life Month in the Catholic Church – Students for Life President Kristan Hawkins shares her
ELIB message in a compelling new video.

Actress Shari Rigby’s role in the movie intersected her real-life story. As a result, she continues to inspire women to share their stories of healing and forgiveness.

Now available on Blu-ray and DVD, OCTOBER BABY impacted audiences across the country and shocked the Hollywood established when it debuted in the box office top 10 – in limited release. The film – the Erwin brothers’ first feature film – went on to earn more than $5 million during its theatrical run, and a place in Entertainment Weekly’s Top 15 Box Office Surprises of the year. OCTOBER BABY also earned significant praise from Catholic pro-life leaders.
