Tamara Jenkins: Nyu Tisch School of the Arts
It’s been a decade since Tamara Jenkins released her last film, but the writer-director has a project on the way, and it sounds amazing: “Private Life,” a Netflix original film, will star Kathryn Hahn (“Bad Moms”), Paul Giamatti (“Billions”), and Molly Shannon (“Divorce).
Variety reports that the drama centers on a couple (Hahn and Giamatti) “in the throes of infertility, trying to maintain their marriage as they descend deeper and deeper into the weird world of assisted reproduction and domestic adoption.” Shannon, who recently won an Independent Spirit Award for her supporting turn in “Other People,” plays a friend of the couple.
Jenkins most recently directed “The Savages.” The critically-acclaimed 2007 dramedy centers on adult siblings (Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman) dealing with their father’s ailing health. The film earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay. Jenkins also wrote and directed the 1998 cult classic “Slums of Beverly Hills,” starring Natasha Lyonne (“Orange Is the New Black”).
“Writing is weird and lonely and makes you grumpy and strange,” Jenkins has said of the writing process. She emphasized, “To write you really should be writing every single day to keep the muscle going. But then if you write and make a movie, the year of working on the movie goes by and then you’re supposed to start writing again and you have kind of forgotten how.”
Tamara Jenkins to Direct “Private Life,” Starring Kathryn Hahn and Molly Shannon was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

It’s been exactly 10 years since Tamara Jenkins made her last feature film, “The Savages.” Now, the director returns with “Private Life,” as reported by Variety. The Netflix drama stars Molly Shannon, who just won an Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Female for her role in “Other People,” where she plays a mother dying of cancer.
Per the film’s official plot synopsis, the film follows “Richard and Rachel, a couple in the throes of infertility, [who] try to maintain their marriage as they descend deeper and deeper into the weird world of assisted reproduction and domestic adoption. When their doctor suggests third party reproduction, they bristle. But when Sadie, a recent college drop out, re-enters their life, they reconsider.” Read More: Jennifer Aniston Joins Cast of Anne Fletcher’s ‘Pitch Perfect’-Esque Indie Teen Comedy

This year will mark a decade since the release of The Savages, the second feature from Slums of Beverly Hills director Tamara Jenkins. Starring Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman, it was a powerfully-acted, perceptive look at familial struggle, and we’ve been waiting ever since for her follow-up. 10 years later, it is finally coming and a cast has already been set.
Financed and distributed by Netflix, Private Life stars Paul Giamatti, Kathryn Hahn, Molly Shannon, and John Carroll Lynch. Jenkins’ script follows a married couple (Giamatti and Hahn) who are struggling with infertility and its damaging effect on their relationship, but when their niece offers up her eggs, things change. Shannon, who picked up an Indie Spirit award for Other People this year, will play the niece’s mother, while Lynch plays Giamatti’s brother and Shannon’s husband.
