Real science fiction
30 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I only saw this today. I probably would have thought it sensationalistic if I'd seen it when it first came out. It's about a couple asked to be the first parents to have a truly in vitro baby. Such a concept would probably have seemed unthinkable when the movie was first shown. Today it seems like a very thoughtful film that considers scientific developments just around the corner. This is really the best kind of sf. It's very thoughtfully done and makes the viewer think about the issues that might be involved. And yet it manages to have quite a bit of suspense. I recommend it highly for viewers who appreciated real sf as opposed to space westerns.
