Corporate fertility
2 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a low budget British Rom Com starring Fiona Gillies as a corporate high flier in her 40s who has to find a suitable man to impregnate her and raise the child.

The situation is accelerated as her frozen eggs were destroyed when the clinic storing it caught fire, her boyfriend of many years (Adrian Lukis) has no interest in wanting kids with her and she wants in effect a house husband.

Things are complicated when she meets Geoffrey Streatfield in a park and they seem to hit it off and at the same time her father (Tom Conti) moves in with her. By losing her focus on her job she finds that she might be a victim of some corporate shenanigans.

The film is also produced by Gillies and written by her husband Michael Muller. So its a labour of love for these two and it is nice to see Gillies having a starring role when in the late 1980s and early 90s she looked like she might become a major television star.

The film is likable, it has managed to get a good original songs and soundtrack and it is refreshing to find a British rom com where they do not match a big British star with an American star. However despite some comedy, low key romance and corporate adventures it does look more like a nice television movie, watchable which happily passes the time. All the actors are clearly putting a lot of effort in the film which is to be commended.
