A baby's conception isn't always the easiest thing in the world.
17 October 2007 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Tick Tock Lullaby (2007) was written and directed by Lisa Gornick, who also stars in the film. Ms. Gornick plays Sasha, a cartoonist who is happily paired with Maya, played by Raquel Cassidy. However, Sasha wants a baby, and both members of the pair decide that conception should take place via intercourse, not by artificial means. That, obviously, is a real dilemma, although it's presented in a humorous fashion in the film.

Meanwhile, another couple, Fiona (Joanna Bending) and Todd (Willam Bowry), also want to conceive a child. The problem there is that they really aren't all that happy in their marriage, and so actually getting into bed at the proper time isn't as easy as it sounds.

Finally, Sarah Patterson plays Gillian, a photographer who is sizing up (so to speak) potential fathers as she takes their pictures.

All of the characters are attractive and sophisticated, and it's enjoyable to listen to their rapid-fire repartee. We see many cartoons being drawn, and they are fascinating. (I don't know if Ms. Gornick can draw in addition to her ability to write, direct, and act, but whoever is drawing the cartoons is very talented.)

This wasn't a great movie, but it was a very good one. It's worth finding and watching, and will work well on DVD. We saw it at ImageOut, the Rochester NY Lesbian and Gay Film and Video Festival.
