'Who Is Clark Rockefeller?' Is Latest Lifetime Movie Ripped From the Headlines

The movie is told through the eyes of Sidney Bixon, played by Thora Birch, an online magazine journalist who is reporting on the incident. Besides the plotline of the girls pact, the second storyline involves a fight between the school nurse who wants to hand out contraception and a family values advocate, whose 15-year-old daughter is one of the pregnant girls, who says condoms will cause students to have sex.

"With this movie, we wanted to create conversations with our viewers like the ones going on in the town about abstinence and birth control," Lopez said, "We don't say one is right and one is wrong, but we wanted women to start looking at the issue and start a dialogue."

When the movie premiered on Lifetime, some viewers criticized the movie for being too fictional. In Lifetime's defense, the movie was only ever billed as being "inspired by real events." Either way, viewers didn't seem to care. The movie had 5.8 million viewers.
