Certain movies are designed to make you think. Birth is one of them. You can’t help but take notice. It picks you up and drops you into this woman’s life. The “what ifs” keep comning, and when you’re not thinking about what is happening, you’re thinking about what she could be thinking!
Nicole Kidman is the woman in question, a young widow faced with the possible reincarnation of her dead husband. Her life goes from content to tortuous as the events unravel that lead her to question a child’s identity, and her own sanity. Kidman is mesmerizing - when she is lost in thought we’re lost right along with her.
This movie stimulated more conversation in my household afterwards than any movie has in a long time.
