Storyline

Desperate to provide an heir to the family fortune and unable to conceive naturally, Sally (Belinda Davey) and Michael Craig (Andrew Sharp) are at their wits' end.

Semi-surreal and slow-moving, but involving.
14 February 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I saw Glass Babies when I was about 14 and have never seen it since (it wasn't even listed on IMDb). What I do remember is that there are several very strong female roles in this film; the two leads Davey and Furness and the ill-fated doctor played by the fabulous Rowena Wallace.

Furness agrees to be a surrogate for Davey, but she decides she wants to keep the child. Then it seems a man called Brendan Keller, Furness' partner, is manipulating them and many other people in his business schemes, resulting in a vaguely surreal confrontation in their country house.

It's not the fastest paced film, but it is interesting and as I said, the women are all very good. There's a nice theme and the ending is quite satisfying, if downbeat.
