When their doctor suggests third party reproduction, they bristle. But when Sadie, a recent college drop… Runtime: 123 min Release Date: 05 Oct 2018
It is so rare for me to enjoy every single aspect of a film. The acting was superb. The writing was top shelf. Wonderful cast. Good sets. Enjoyable soundtrack. And I usually complain about two hours being too long but, in this case, I didn't mind at all and didn't want it to end. I don't remember when I've enjoyed a movie this much; there's so much junk out there. The only minor point I didn't like, and it's trivial, is putting a title on different scenes. Like a headline on a sub-text. I think I would've understood the transitions just fine without the titles.
If you don't understand the ending or why it feels like a long film... (by amanda-15127-18211)
... then you are clearly lucky enough to not have experienced infertility issues. The reason it's so long is because infertility is long. The reason the ending never reached a climax is because for some people, the journey to becoming parents never ends. If you consider these points then you'll see your complaints in a whole new light.I thought the acting was superb, I loved the candid, realistic portrayal of such a horrific and sensitive subject. Definitely recommend this film.
execellent (by mageh)
It is a well done movie. Very delicate subject treated with humor and grace. Funny and realistic at the same time. It was pleasant surprise from Netflix. Good job.
It definitely pulls you in (by Nikkers980)
The whole film I was waiting for that high -- that relief to come and it never came. And that just very well may be how it is for those struggling with infertility. It definitely pulls you in and you forget you're watching a movie. Walking away from this I feel I have learned so much more about infertility, relationships etc ... Great acting, and great story telling.
disappointed couple fails to conceive (by maurice_yacowar)
This wonderful, intense domestic drama has topics, conversations, relationships perhaps never shown before in American cinema. As it traces a fractious couple's arguments and struggles trying to get a baby, it provides rare insights into tensions in a marriage and in its larger community. The couple's dilemma is embodied in gynaecologist Dr. Dordick: Will the conception be by doctor or dick? The latter having failed, a range of alternatives are suggested, rejected, then tried, then lost. Happily, the film is far too sensitive and tasteful ever to stoop to that level of vulgarity or <more>
silliness. Professionally as well as conceptually, the couple have been disappointed in their lives. They live in a small flat in a pre-gentrified NYC neighbourhood. Richard was a brilliant off-Broadway theatre director until his company expired. Now he sells pickles in a market. He keeps an old Village Voice rave review at hand. He has only one testicle. Rachel is a writer between books, long obsessed with having a child. This is American brilliance, defeated. The intellectually rich, down at its heels and its mouth. And yet they end up representing American entitlement. For all their inabilities, failures and disappointments, the couple persists unbowed in their quest for parenthood. They feel entitled to become parents, no matter their limitations, their failures. Indeed, that quest seems to have become their only bond. Their quarrels and their compromises circle around that subject. They seem to have no other connections. They've had sex only once in the last year. They alternately erupt, then retreat. That obsession makes this modest couple a possible personification of American exceptionalism. This makes the intimate family drama a microcosm of America. Its confidence sapped, its limitations overwhelming, its promised solutions futile and illusory, it stumbles along in dream after dream, defeat after defeat, unable to acknowledge and to accept that some successes are simply not theirs to have. Their deluded quest for their Eden leaves them suspended at Appleby's.
I loved this movie, it is one of the most authentic feeling movies I have seen. It didn't have this "everything is black and white" notion that you are usually given. Instead, it was very realistic, the characters were actual human beings and the whole thing felt like you were watching in on someone's life. Both starring roles were executed perfectly and I especially loved the ending.If you are looking for action and huge dramas, this is not for you.
like a smooth ride on an empty street (by meme-36137)
Both the leads have such an endearing quality to them, their relationship seems so natural that you forget they are acting, the movie feels so real and makes the viewer become a part of the couple's life. Great acting, great writing on a couple's journey to become parents while holding on to their relationship. Simply endearing.
This film was really good, can't believe I watched it on Netflix! (by hunter_m)
Great actors and very appropriate casting of Giamatti and Hahn. I've loved this hysterical Katherine Hahn character ever since the series I Love Dick. Such a treat to see them together, and so natural! There really wasn't one moment where I felt like I was outside of the film looking in. It really captured how I imagine! this scenario to be, particularly the unsexiness of trying to get pregnant over and over. I also enjoyed the rebellious commentary from their niece on their art driven lifestyle, reminded me of crap I would've said in my first years at uni, haha. The focus on <more>
fertility, pregnancy, IVF cycles et al. can be a lil heavy and will probably deter the male audience meh but it is a film that I'd rather watch alone or with friends - not a date movie! Probably unrelated but something something like this actually happens in the film too...
Very Apt Writing, Brilliant Cast (by Tail_End_Charlie)
The entire cast turns in wonderful performances. The script is infused with droll humor, and the multiple instances of awkwardness come off as genuine, bolstered by sensitive pacing. The storyline feels a bit worn and redundant at times, but this might have been intentional, considering the subject matter. In contrast, many contemporary American films strive to include way too many plot points. The city scenes and interiors made me miss New York -- the production design was quite good. There are a few subtle surprises in the script which worked well. Highly recommended.
