Personal not popcorn
20 July 2010 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that prove movies can be more than mere entertainment - this was a deeply moving personal experience for me.

I'm an adoptee myself, and being immersed in this world from the side of the prospective parents, well I guess I never really stopped to consider that very much. Now I do.

Set the popcorn aside and watch this film, and then think about family and relationships and the impact the arrival and anticipation of a child can have, especially if that child arrives by 'other means'.

Congrats Claire, and thanks for making me THINK of the thing that most people take for granted - family.
