Portraying pregnancy - film discussion panel: Private Life
Join us for this online film discussion of Tamara Jenkins' rave-reviewed comedy drama "Private Life" about a couple undergoing IVF and considering egg donation starring the amazing Kathryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti:
“This is a story you'll want to watch to its exquisitely compassionate ending: a wordless final-credits aria that …speaks volumes about the nature of minute-to-minute emotional survival.” TimeOut
Having a baby is not always straight-forward, and COVID-19 has compounded an already challenging situation for many.
The panel discussion will be held as a webinar on Thursday 25th June at 7.00 pm UK time, with a Q&A.
