Reviews
Mine: Chilling and well acted, but at times confusing. Ultimattly lacking in impact. Emotionally alluff.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Intriguing story set in a near-future world in which young, healthy white women are brainwashed to become bearers of babies for a new, ``pure'' generation. Richardson must overcome the jealousy of an infertile wife (Dunaway) while fending off the advances of her high-powered husband (Duvall). Interesting but best described as sterile. Scripted by Harold Pinter from the novel by Margaret Atwood. David Dukes appears unbilled as a doctor.
