We’ll be discussing Tamara Jenkins’ comedy drama “Private Life” starring Kathryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti as a middle-aged couple struggling with having a baby and running out of options. It’s one of The Guardian’s best 100 films of the 21st Century and was recently chosen as one of their streaming gems! You can watch the trailer here and the film is available to view on Netflix in advance of the panel discussion.

We’ll be talking about the film in the company of:

  • Isabel Davis, Historian of ‘un-pregnancy’ or the ‘am-I-aren’t-I time’: a zone of ambiguity in relation to pregnancy diagnosis, Birkbeck University of London
  • Carmel Dennehy, Specialist Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Reproductive Medicine

We look forward to you joining us online!
