Thought provoking TV Movie
4 April 2002 | by (Sheffield, England) – See all my reviews

While some may say that this is just an ordinary tv movie, I must concede a point, they are correct but that is not the whole story. What you may fail to realise is the ethical questions raised by the cloning of a human being. The movie addresses quite few issues that seem as relevant today as when the movie is set. Press invasion is nicely treated and the fame hungry Bridget Fonda's character goes through somewhat of a change. She goes from a cold-hearted glory-hungry monster to ethical reporter (I will not spoil the ending). Next we see a much more sympathetic depiction of the doctors involved and the research they use and the reasons they do what they do. What is most interesting is the ethical questions that you ask yourself. Would you do the same thing if it was your only avenue for having a child? Put yourself in their shoes then try and tell me you would not.
