"Gone Baby Gone"

I'm probably behind the curve on this one, but I just saw the (relatively) recent movie, "Gone Baby Gone."  Here's the opening line (spoken by the main character, a private investigator "from the neighborhood" in Boston):

I always believed it was the things you don't choose that makes you who you are. Your city, your neighborhood, your family.

I won't provide any spoilers, but here's a thought:  "Juno" and "Bella" (and "Knocked Up") notwithstanding, "Gone Baby Gone" was one of the most "Catholic" -- and, I thought, one of the most pro-life (in a subtle way) -- movies made in recent years.  Discuss.
