Roe Vs. Wade
Based on the landmark 1973 U.S. Supreme Court case that upheld a woman's right to have an abortion, the made-for-television film Roe Vs. Wade follows an unmarried Texas woman (Holly Hunter) and her lawyer (Amy Madigan), as they take her case to the Supreme Court. Abortion is always a controversial issue, yet the filmmakers admirably manage to offend neither side in this straightforward yet gripping account. Roe Vs. Wade won two Emmy Awards: Outstanding Lead Actress (Hunter) and Outstanding Drama Special.
