Private Life 2018 / On Netflix

8.1

Paul Giamatti, man. Ever watched Win/Win? What a performance. I didn’t think he could do any better than that. But here he did.

This movie is now on Netflix. It’s about a couple that is trying to have a kid but can’t. Their frustration grows, but so does their willingness to do whatever it takes to become parents. They try to adopt, go to fertility clinics and ultimately ask their niece to donate her eggs. To really work, such a plot requires well-written, multifaceted characters one can relate to. I did, and it really worked.

This didn’t work for me. It’s a 90 minute movie stuffed into 2+ hours. Some great lines, but the plot points were all waiting for a conclusion that didn’t really seem worth the time.

If you watch movies for the characters, you will love Private Life.

Poor thriller. The story doesn’t adds up! Sometimes it doesn’t even make sense (the story). Didn’t like it!
