Storyline

Childless Los Angeles realtor Allison Kelly can no longer have children, she having frozen some embryos upon that diagnosis. With only one viable embryo among those left, she and her college professor/novelist husband Jacob Kelly have decided to try surrogacy to have that child. Despite going to a surrogacy agency, they eventually decide upon "a friend", Kate Randall, as their surrogate, she a young woman who recently started working in a support staff function in Jacob's English department at the college. What Jacob and Allison are unaware of is that Kate maneuvered her way into being their surrogate, she doing whatever necessary behind the scenes to get the job and she who has long been obsessed with Jacob. Her ultimate goal is to be with Jacob as a couple, the unborn child solely a pawn. As such, she sets in motion a plan which includes forming a rift between Allison and Jacob, with Jacob turning to her for support. What Kate does not account on is that a man named Matt is looking ... Written by Huggo

When the Water Breaks
23 April 2015 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Before the opening credits, an attractive young woman has a terrible fight with an older man. She kicks him in the goody holders and drives away… After the credits, we meet cute college professor Cameron Mathison (as Jacob Kelly). He is obviously not the man in the opening. Also a famous novelist, Mr. Mathison is happily married to attractive realtor Annie Wersching (as Allison). Due to health and age concerns, Ms. Wersching is unable to bear children. She has, luckily, one viable frozen embryo left in the fridge. The only thing left for Mathison and Wersching to do is find a surrogate for their baby. This being a "Lifetime" TV movie, you know what that means...

Drooling over Mathison, Amy Scott (as Katherine "Kate" Randall) maneuvers her way into a job at the college. The young woman we meet in the violent opening minutes, Ms. Scott is determined to be selected as "The Surrogate" and carry Mathison's child. Surrogate mothers are marvelous foil for psycho TV movie women. This story follows a predictable formula, but adds some events you're not likely to predict, especially during the last minutes. A pregnant woman shown "water breaking" has become acceptable viewing on US TV, but director Doug Campbell and his crew top it off with an astonishing and wacky look at what could possibly follow that function.

***** The Surrogate (1/1/13) Doug Campbell ~ Cameron Mathison, Amy Scott, Annie Wersching, Matthew Alan
