The drama Call Jane arrives for digital purchase Dec. 6, and on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD Dec. 13 from Lionsgate.
Inspired by true events of Chicago’s underground abortion network known as The Jane Collective, Call Jane stars Sigourney Weaver, Elizabeth Banks and Kate Mara.
Set in Chicago in 1968 as a city and the nation are on the brink of political upheaval, the film follows suburban housewife Joy (Banks), her husband and daughter, who are living the all-American dream until Joy’s life-threatening pregnancy forces her to navigate a medical establishment unwilling to help. This impossible situation leads Joy to the “Janes,” an underground network providing the only available alternative, helmed by fierce advocates Virginia (Weaver) and Gwen (Wunmi Mosaku), who not only save Joy’s life, but change it forever.
Special features on Blu-ray and DVD include deleted scenes; the “You Are Not Alone: The Making of Call Jane” featurette; and audio commentary with director Phyllis Nagy and producer Robbie Brenner.
