Private Life Reviews
I wasn't sure about this, but the further into it I got, the more I went on to appreciate it. Paul Giamatti was his normal weird self, the biggest surprise were Kathryn Hahn and Molly Shannon in roles that you're not used to seeing.
Back to the reason I love the Oscar race, if a standard film ended like this, the audience may potentially riot lol. Thankfully I've grown to be accustomed to "surprise" unfinished endings.
Dear Off beaters...go grab it.
During an egg retrieval, a surgeon would never recommend that the husband run across the city to immediately have his sperm aspirated and to have that surgeon be paid immediately at that moment. We bailed!
Sometimes funny comedy on the quest for successful fertilisation. The strong cast make what could have been unlikable characters likable.
For those emotionally tuned to such an experience, it'll cut deep as a drama, and hopefully provide some comedic comfort along the way. And for those unfamiliar with reproductive challenges, it introduces you to a whole new world. Education, well earned laughs, and perhaps some new found empathy. Not a bad way to spend two hours. Yet with an ending that will leave some questioning, and a subject matter aimed for a target audience, it won't deliver for all.
