Cody Horn & Cait Cortelyou in Trailer for 'Ask for Jane' 1960s Drama
"This was us doing it for us." LevelFilm has debuted an official trailer for an indie film titled Ask for Jane, based on a true story about a group of women in the late 1960s who secretly offered safe abortions. "Imagine a world where abortion is punishable by prison, and getting birth control is nearly impossible. As a result, women die every day from taking matters into their own hands. When a pregnant student at the University of Chicago attempts to take her own life, Rose and Janice find a doctor willing to perform the procedure in secret to save the woman's life." Together they decide to launch the Jane Collective: a secret organization to help other women obtain safe and illegal abortions. Starring Cait Cortelyou and Cody Horn, along with Sarah Steele, Sarah Ramos, Alison Wright, Ben Rappaport, & Sophie von Haselberg. See below.
