Private Life (2018)

private_life_xxlg

An author is undergoing multiple fertility therapies to get pregnant, putting her relationship with her husband on edge. (IMDb)
Almost perfectly crafted (the titles were unnecessary), with thoughtful music and camerawork (the handheld sequences were a nice touch), great turns (the main trio is magnetic), and a beautiful script (see the many beginning/end parallels) that naturally capture all the awkwardness, beauty, and pain not just of fertility treatments but of family, marriage, and growing up/old. Some threads are left hanging (see Sadie’s “our baby” comment), but that’s the way life goes (see the cliffhanger end).
8.5/10 (Amazing)
