False Prophets ★½ 2006 (R)

Waitress Maggie (Heuring) is pregnant and wants an abortion until a fundamentalist group talks her into adoption because they believe there's something miraculous about the baby. Except Maggie gets suspicious and runs away and winds up at a rural gas station with a spiritually-minded attendant named Manny (Lyons), who helps her give birth in a field. There's supposed to be some meaning to all this. ?m/ C DVD . Lori Heuring, Patrick Bergin, Clayne Crawford, Tucker Smallwood, Antonio David Lyons; C: David Gossard; M: Brian Arbuckle. VIDEO
