The present study was conducted with the aim to analyze the female characters of the movie of "Invitation" (2008) directed by Ibrahim Hatami Kia from the view point of Jean Shinoda Bolen theory. The film is the first non-war cinematic movie by Hatamikia. It is composed of five episodes, each with an independent storyline, but the commonality of them is the main character of the woman of every story that faces unwanted pregnancy and for reasons one of the couples in each episode intends to abortion. In fact, the audience of the movie of Invitation is watching different reactions of five women in different social and cultural situations in relation to unwanted pregnancy and their decision to abort their children. The research method is descriptive-analytical and its information is based on library method, as well as field study, relying on watching the movie and reviewing the speech and acting of its main characters. In her approach, Bolen inspired by Greek mythology, points to the seven archetypes including Hera, Demeter, Persephone, Athena, Artemis, Hestia and Aphrodite. These types emphasize a number of personality characteristics of women such as the desire to marry, motherly feelings, the desire for innocence and the girl's obedience, or desire for effort and progress. According to Bolen, there is energy and archetypes of the discussed patterns in today's women and their actions and reactions are affected by the pattern. The results of this study show that in the five episodes of the movie, respectively, the archetypes of Athena, Persephone, Dimitri, Hera and Athena are recognizable and interpretable on the basis of the acts and speeches of the movie characters. But at the end of all episodes, with the overriding domination of Dimitri's archetype, all women have avoided their abortion. This was more evident in the last episode.
