45 Netflix Original Movies Well Worth A Watch
Private Life is an intimate, personal drama about infertility. It’s a movie that’s dark and funny and recognizes that there’s no conflict between those two ideas. Featuring wondrous central performances from Paul Giamatti and Kathryn Hahn, the film unfolds as a lived-in tragedy about a couple that can’t have children.
The brilliance of Private Life stems chiefly from the way infertility hangs over everything else in their lives. Director Tamara Jenkins frames her characters as normal people in abnormal circumstances. She gives you a chance to feel everything. That’s what makes the movie so affecting. It doesn’t hide any of its emotions from you.
