Private Life

Dir. Tamara Jenkins USA 123 min R

2018 Netflix

Paul Giamatti stars alongside Kathryn Hahn in this funny yet melancholy story of New York artists trying not to miss their chance at family. A tender triumph from director Tamara Jenkins, who visited us with the film last Fall.

From Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Tamara Jenkins (The Savages, Slums of Beverly Hills), Private Life is the bracingly funny and moving story of Richard and Rachel, a couple in the throes of infertility who try to maintain their marriage as they descend deeper and deeper into the insular world of assisted reproduction and domestic adoption.  After the emotional and economic upheaval of in vitro fertilization, they’re at the end of their middle-aged rope, but when Sadie (breakout newcomer Kayli Carter), a recent college dropout, re-enters their life, things begin to look up.
