'Having a child is a distraction from your own mortality': Kathryn Hahn and Tamara Jenkins on their IVF film

Hahn stars in Jenkins’ new comedy about a couple struggling with infertility. They talk about whether feminism and the media should shoulder some blame for encouraging women to wait before reproducing – and why their film shouldn’t be dismissed as a chick flick


For all those in London, you can buy tickets to hear the amazing Nicole Holofcener speak about her process. For those not in London, we could probably look forward to a podcast or this soon! You can find Nicole’s newest film LAND OF STEADY HABITS on Netflix.
