#23 – Adopting Trouble
Hope Strikes Back Podcast
Every so often a movie comes along that is not only highly entertaining but also full of wit and humor while touching on a sensitive (and dark) subject. Adopting Trouble is one of those movies. The film is a story about married couple Nick, an ex-con, and Maryanne, a devoted Christian, who are determined to start a family. It’s soon discovered that they can’t due to medical reasons. To make matters worse, they are also unable to adopt because Nick is a convicted felon. Desperate to have children, they kidnap Andrea, a pregnant, career-driven, single woman scheduled to have an abortion, as part of a scheme to force her to have her baby for them.
The writer, Blake Casselman, and the writer/director, Lee Gardner, of Adopting Trouble recently took some time out of their busy schedules to sit down with our panel and discuss the movie. Listen as they share behind the scenes stories, discuss the filmmaking process, and talk about what they hope to do with the film in the future. If you enjoy movies, or if you just want a good laugh, this is a conversation that you don’t want to miss!
Adopting Trouble won the highest Comedy Feature Film award at the 2016 WorldFest Houston International Film Festival and a Best Narrative Film Award at the Covellite International Film Festival in Montana so you know it’s good. It is currently available to either rent or buy online. Visit Rare Legend Films website or the Adopting Trouble Facebook page for more information.
