Storyline

"A Modern Affair" is a romantic comedy about the strain of contemporary relationships, one woman's urgent desire for parenthood, and a solution to it all. Grace Rhodes is the perfect corporate executive -- bright, successful, attractive and with just professional touch. With her career in place, Grace feels she has everything she needs -- until she bumps into an ex-boyfriend bearing photos of his young kids. Feeling the irresistible urge to have a child, but not sure about waiting around for Mr. Right," Grace knows what she wants, but not how best to get it. Elaine, her wryly pragmatic best friend, suggests that Grace do the unthinkable and enlist the services of a sperm bank. After choosing a donor from the "DNA menu," Grace becomes pregnant and deeply curious about the identity of the donor #247. Enter Peter Kessler, a handsome photographer who divides his time between his craft, his casual affair with a married woman, and his "other job:" depositing specimens as a sperm donor to ...

A Wonderful Film
18 December 2009 | by (Montclair, NJ) – See all my reviews

I actually found this film when it was featured as Fancast.com's "Movie of the Week" this past week. I was able to watch it in its entirely online, and I only wish I'd been able to see it when it was on the big screen.

"A Modern Affair" stars Lisa Eichhorn as a Grace, a corporate executive with the perfect life— until she begins to experience an urgent desire for parenthood. Her quest for the perfect sperm donor and desire to control every aspect of the process lead her to surreptitiously pursue the donor, a handsome photographer (Stanley Tucci in his first starring role). When the two actually meet, a relationship begins to develop, and Grace has to decide whether or not to tell him the truth.

This movie really pulls at your heart, but still makes you laugh. A definite choice for anyone looking for a good flick on a Saturday night.
