Storyline

After years of struggling to conceive with her husband, Lizzie has given up hope of having a baby on her own.

excellent film
9 December 2013 | by davidabullockSee all my reviews

First off let me start this review with the fact that I knew nothing about the film going into seeing it as I was invited by a friend and just said yes to a Saturday evening out with no expectations. I watch a a lot of films and can be a pretty tough critic on the acting, the writing, and so forth and this film came in as a hidden gem of a picture. From the start of the film I was laughing and it had already drawn me in with it's witty humor, clever writing of scenes, and the nice flow the film had from start to finish. I was never even close to bored and the time and pace of the film was spot on perfect for telling this story which the actors did an amazing job of presenting with amazing chemistry between the leads. I do not want to give anything away with this film, but if you enjoy a well told film and want to walk away with a laugh go see this!
