Richard and Rachel, a couple in the throes of infertility, try to maintain their marriage as they descend deeper and deeper into the weird world of assisted reproduction and domestic adoption. When their doctor suggests third party reproduction, they bristle. But when Sadie, a recent college drop out, re-enters their life, they reconsider.
If you don't understand the ending or why it feels like a long film...
... then you are clearly lucky enough to not have experienced infertility issues. The reason it's so long is because infertility is long. The reason the ending never reached a climax is because for some people, the journey to becoming parents never ends. If you consider these points then you'll see your complaints in a whole new light.
I thought the acting was superb, I loved the candid, realistic portrayal of such a horrific and sensitive subject. Definitely recommend this film.
