It has taken Nikole Beckwith 6 years to deliver her sophomore film...oh dear!
With such a terrible title...disappointment was always on the cards. No surprise, disappointment reigned supreme in this exhausting, predictable, overly verbose conversation.
And...it is exactly that - a conversation punctuated with Tig Notaro's monotonal therapist and a gay barista who spouts embarrassing nonsense in - what can only be considered - a desperate attempt at injecting some comedy into this unfunny comedy. Both characters are included for the sole purpose of diversity box-ticking.
Seriously, after the premise is set up, you could fast forward to just before the end and miss absolutely nothing. As for the ending itself, that really ought to have been the place where the film started...jumble up the time-line, show some directorial flourish...surrogacy has never been so pedestrian!
When young loner Anna is hired as the surrogate for Matt, a single man in his 40s, the two strangers come to realize this unexpected relationship will quickly challenge their perceptions of connection, boundaries and the particulars of love.
