First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage. For filmmaker Nina Davenport, that old playground song didn't go as planned. Single at age 41, she decides to have a baby on her own, never minding the odds stacked against her or the extra hurdles of living in New York City. Along the way, she explores the ever-changing definition of "family."
Rather than reviewing this "amateurish home movie" of a desperate non housewife, I would like to suggest that if you are past 40 and still not married and childless, and want a child so badly, for krissakes: adopt.
There are so many children who are abandoned: give them a chance rather than complain after choosing to give birth as a single mother, that it was the worst pain you ever experienced. Really, with all your research you were not expecting that?
(By the way, here's a piece of advice: if you are having your first child: as soon as the contractions start: walk!! Walk in the neighborhood, or around your dining room table, or at the hospital, at a steady clip. I felt the first contractions at 2PM: I walked around the house for the next 3.5 hours: arrived at the hospital at 6PM and delivered my first child without all that suffering and screaming at 9:30PM).
To "create" a baby with a guy who basically does not even want to be a parent at all, and who made this clear from the start, sounds like a lack of ethics on the part of the rather pushy "wannabe mother". And when the kid is about two, she lies in bed with him and accuses him of being "difficult". Why am I not surprised?
Children need two parents, and sometimes that does not happen because of a variety of problems. But the egotism which purposely creates a one parent family, is, in my view, sick and sickening.
Avoid this pathetic "oy my uterus is shutting down" piece of dreck. It is NOT a feminist manifesto; it is a major piece of egotistical whining.
