Storyline

After years of struggling to conceive with her husband, Lizzie has given up hope of having a baby on her own. But when her best friend Andie finds herself pregnant after a one-night stand, an unexpected solution arises: Andie offers to have the baby and give it to Lizzie. The couple agrees to the plan, on one condition: Andie must move in with them for the duration of the pregnancy. But can the women's friendship survive until birth? Jessie McCormack's debut is a refreshingly candid comedy about planning ahead for life's unexpected detours. Written by Tribeca Film

Smart, Sharp, and Funny
8 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A smart, funny debut film by director and writer, Jessie McCormack. The story focuses on two strong female friends who face a difficult decision about a pregnancy. But the film is more than the tired "she's having a baby!" trope, and develops well all of its characters, male and female alike. Ms. McCormack has created characters who are real--they have flaws; they make mistakes. But they are intellectually honest flaws, and this makes for a poignant film. And rather than making these characters unlikable, we realize that they are just trying to make it through life the best they can--just like the rest of us. The story that will make you laugh and sting just a bit in the way good stories should. Kudos to Ms. McCormack and the excellent cast. (The film also looks great.)
