In a nutshell, the movie tells the story of Martha and Sean, a Boston couple on the verge of parenthood whose lives change irrevocably when a home birth ends in unimaginable tragedy. Thus begins a yearlong odyssey for Martha, who must navigate her grief while working through fractious relationships with Sean and her domineering mother, along with the publicly vilified midwife, whom she must face in court.

As we mentioned above, the film has raked in some stellar reviews from both IMDB (who gave it a 5.8) and Rotten Tomatoes (who scored it a solid 78 percent).

In addition to Kirby, the flick’s cast also includes Molly Parker (1922), Ellen Burstyn (The Excorcist), Shia LeBoeuf (The Peanut Butter Falcon), Iliza Shlesinger (Instant Family), Benny Safdie (Uncut Gems), Sarah Snook (Succession), Steven McCarthy (Mary Kills People) and Frank Schorpion (Arrival).

You know where we’ll be tomorrow evening (tissues in hand).
