"When help comes from people like us, it's never going to be seen with good eyes..."
11 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

"When help comes from people like us, it's never going to be seen with good eyes. To accept our condition, one either has to be really smart or really fuc_king dumb. Because, life doesn't give you tools to deal with this." This quote describes what the movie is all about. And this also reflects the situation of the same-sex couples who are trying to build a family through adoption or surrogacy.

This, as of writing, is the best gay-themed movie I've watched and I already watched a lot of gay-themed movies http://www.imdb.com/list/ls073004755/ and gay-themed short films http://www.imdb.com/list/ls073009067/. This film has outstanding acting, modern and enlightening take on how science and technology change the dynamics of having a child and a poignant, unfair yet optimistic juxtaposition of heterosexual and homosexual couples wanting to build a family.

This film is about family dynamics. Family dynamics of a male-male couple who was given a chance to experience having a family. Family dynamics of a female-female couple trying a complicated surrogacy motherhood. Family dynamics of a heterosexual couple who experienced miscarriage and is thinking of adoption. This movie is also about the connections of these family dynamics. This movie will make you smile, will make you laugh, will make you cry, will make you learn something and will make you question society with regard to LGBT - Its more acceptable, but is that enough? We need more of this eye- opening kind of movies. This is one of the channels the LGBT community can use to fight homophobia. This is highly recommended to everyone - gay, straight, young and old!
