Katie and John Kelly (Eliza Coupe and Steve Howey) are ready to settle down and have kids but five years later, all they have to show for their efforts is a mountain of negative pregnancy tests and an increasingly elaborate home micro-brewing rig, which John hopes will launch his company. As they run out of traditional options and their window closing, the couple explores the daunting world of medical, spiritual, and homeopathic methods to conceive a child. With an ensemble cast that also includes Bob Stephenson, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Ed Begley Jr., Jon Daly, and the late Glenne Headly, MAKING BABIES puts a couple through the ringer of modern infertility treatments and questions whether their marriage will withstand the ultimate test.
The film captures both the extreme highs and lows that accompany dealing with infertility. Making Babies is surprisingly relatable to all parents and hope-to-be parents as the film definitely has something for everyone that watches it.
Trigger Warning: for those that have struggled with infertility be sure to bring a few tissues as this film may tug on your heart strings.
Josh Huber shared that he created this film in hopes of helping to erase the stigma often associated with infertility. And let other couples know that they are not alone.
Elizabeth Rodriquez in her role as a strong, supportive, and compassionate Latina matriarch of her nuclear family was a perfect fit. Refreshing and timely.
Making Babies heads to theaters nationwide on Mar. 29.
