Before They Were Stars: Gillian Anderson in “A Matter of Choice”

In 1988, a young Gillian Anderson starred in a four-minute short film called A Matter of Choice. Unfortunately, even at only four minutes, this is still one of the most boring shorts you’ll ever sit through. This black-and-white film is completely silent and the quality is so poor that it’s hard to tell what’s going on. From what I can deduce, Anderson walks up to an illegal abortion clinic and spends a few minutes standing around, deciding if she wants to go inside. And that’s pretty much it. The most amusing thing about this short is that the name of the director is William Davis, whom I’m presuming is no relation to William B. Davis, a.k.a. The Cigarette-Smoking Man on The X-Files.
