Not since 1972 has abortion been treated with so much compassion, humor, honesty and reality. November 1972 was when the title character on TV’s “Maude” chose to end her pregnancy via abortion, the same choice made by Donna Stern in Jenny Slate’s “Obvious Child.”
It matters little that Sebastian Silvio, the writer/director of "Crystal Fairy," also wrote and directed "The Maid," a little masterpiece. It matters only that he thought a moment in his own life would make a dandy little film, and, further, that he thought that moment and that film would interest anyone. It does not.
