jen’s review published on Letterboxd:
I love the relaxed pacing and slice-of-life storytelling of private live. one might think that just bcos the film centers on the topic of infertility, it’s all weepy dialogue but no, private life is actually very clever at finding humor in the relentless uncontrollable failures of fertility staging. and I guess a two-hour running time for this film isn’t necessarily too long — the length helps convey rachel and richard’s monotonous journey. also, all the actors have given great performances to make this story representive of authentic optimism and hope.
