Compelling and Confusing
9 December 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Inconceivable is not a movie I had heard of before but Jennifer Tilly draws my attention. This production style has ten individuals or pairings of clinic patients interact as a group, and we are invited to watch the story unfold in an asynchronous presentation. The group have an unrealistic conception success rate and a medical review takes the viewers back and forth through several months of these peoples lives.

I found myself often confused where I was in the story and every time the setting changes, the experiences of all ten are displayed. I'm looking for the differences for the differences of feelings or responses from the ten, but mostly wondered why does the movie want me to watch all ten going through basically the same motions. This repetition maybe the only reason the movie is compelling at all.

Ultimately the movie feels like it's 20 minutes too long. The Las Vegas setting feels like a silly place for a fertility clinic unless the satire of the story is trying to make concept of taking a gamble more conspicuous. There is little which is believable about the story, and maybe that was an intention point -- we should be cautious about any technologies involving life and death choices.

While I can't really recommend anyone search out this title, it was a satisfying distraction for an afternoon.
