Genre/Subjects: Comedy, Drama, Lesbian, Parenting / Family
Program: World Cinema
Language: English

DIRECTOR: Lisa Gornick

Bursting with smart, tender observations on the travails of prospective parenthood, Tick Tock Lullaby is a sharply observed three-part exploration of sexuality and the search for sperm in hip thirty-something London. Spot-on dialogue, dynamic cinematography and perfect performances are the highlights of this gently unfolding intimate portrait of one lesbian couple’s struggle with whether (and how) to have a baby.
Butch-y artist Sasha (writer/director Lisa Gornick) and her attorney girlfriend Maya’s (Brit TV phenom Raquel Cassidy) heterosexual procreation envy are contrasted with a pair of other baby-making stories: A single female photographer who wants a child (but not a relationship) sleeps around with a series of young clueless guys while her coupled sister and her boyfriend entertain doubts (and sex and intimacy issues) as they try to make a baby the old-fashioned way.
Sasha’s intimate confessions and endearing neuroses touch a lovely, vulnerable nerve as do her tremendously thoughtful reflections on love, sex and intimacy in this bracingly honest, beautifully made British feature from the director of sexy rom-com Do I Love You? (Frameline25). — JENNI OLSON
