Casa de los Babys

Acclaimed filmmaker John Sayles ("Lone Star") delivers an intense and provocative ensemble drama that captures six women (Maggie Gyllenhaal, Daryl Hannah, Marcia Gay Harden, Susan Lynch, Mary Steenburgen, Lili Taylor) at one of the most emotionally charged moments of their lives - each one on the verge of adopting a baby. Trapped together in an exotic South American motel run by the colourful Senora Munoz (Rita Moreno), they anxiously wait for the local bureaucracy to process their adoption of newborns from the nearby orphanage. Over the weeks, they share hope and desperation surrounding their overwhelming desires to have a child. A poignant, sharp, insightful look at clashing cultures, modern maternity and the mystery of fate.
