A thorough (some might say exhaustive or even exhausting) look at surrogacy and what can happen when something goes wrong.

While the film seems sincere enough in its intent and features fine performances across the board, its loquacious nature nevertheless takes over, as if it's ticking off items on a checklist of talking points that the screenwriter believed must be covered before picture's end. In that sense, this makes the film more like a college ethics class debate than an emotionally engaging story. Its tangents into other subjects at times seems a bit suspect, too, as if the filmmakers believed that a full palette of political correctness concepts needed to be addressed, using its central premise as a launching pad. Sadly, "The Surrogate" may have its heart in the right place, but its approach to its subject leaves something to be desired. Expand
