Zmirak on Gimme Shelter

Over at Aleteia John Zmirak hands serves up a scorcher of a review of the new film Gimme Shelter.

This is not some pious film produced by well-meaning pro-lifers and Bible-thumpers who borrowed a camera. It’s a mainstream Hollywood movie, produced by a team that made its bones on music videos, who blundered across a story they found compelling: a culture that uses girls up and tosses them out, and a tiny subculture of citizens who try to repair the damage — to treat these girls and their babies for the first time as human beings. The process of healing isn’t pretty, and it isn’t always successful. Casual sex, as we have forgotten, is playing with fire. This movie visits the burn ward.
