EXCLUSIVE: Here’s a clip from the Leena Pendharker-directed drama 20 Weeks, a timely narrative that explores the pressures surrounding pregnancy as well as how prenatal and genetic testing can contribute to the choices people face. The pic, from Meritage Pictures/Spicy Mango Productions, will have its world premiere today at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

Written by Pendharker, the film stars Anna Margaret Hollyman (Mr. Roosevelt) and Amir Arison (The Blacklist) as a new couple in their 30s who, upon learning during the 20-week scan that their baby has a serious health issue in utero, must decide whether to move forward with the pregnancy.

Sujata Day and Michelle Krusiec co-star in the film, which was produced by Jane Kelly Kosek.
