Haveababy – 8

Despite having no knowledge of, experience with or particular interest in the subject of in-vitro fertilization, I was hooked from the start of this documentary, and it never let go. Director Amanda Micheli skillfully mixed science, human interest, joy, sadness, ethics and economics, with just the right touches of humor for leavening to tell a story that is provocative and enlightening. I saw the movie twice and cried both times. My only disappointment was not the filmmakers’ fault but the result of the dice that a documentary has to throw: the couple that won the IVF contest and thus became one of the three personal stories the film tracked was neither attractive nor inspiring. That’s the difference between life and Hollywood.
