Storyline

Tina is a New York artist whose husband, Wayne lives off her money and success. They invite her eight-months pregnant art school rival, Karen, a housewife and perfect wife and power hungry, new-money husband, Don to their Brooklyn loft, surprising them with Tina's new work-in-progress: a radical alternative to motherhood. Tina who is having a child via a surrogate, tells Karen that she couldn't stand having someone hanging off her breast all day. Karen retaliates that being pregnant makes her feel like a celebrity, and that she's sorry for people who don't have children. When the sensuous, non-traditional surrogate, Kiki arrives, the truth comes out, and the patriarchy fights to hang on by its teeth. And a tough debate broke out between ex-girlfriends, in which everyone tried to defend their opinion about surrogate motherhood. They reveal secrets.

Nice little Gem
16 June 2019 | by natcalgarySee all my reviews

Wouldn't call it brilliant but over-all it was a nice little movie. I was surprised at the low rating then I remembered that people tend to lie action and suspense and crazy twists and turns. Well this movie has none of that but shows how REAL life is. Coming of middle age and sacrafices people make.

Great acting..

over all

6.8
