Making Grace (2004, 80 min)

Produced and Directed by Catherine Gund. Ann Krsul and Leslie Sullivan want to be mothers together. Ann will carry the baby, and Leslie will leave her job to stay at home and raise their child. Choosing the route of the anonymous sperm bank, they hope to match Leslie's vital statistics so that Ann can give birth to a baby with the potential to look like them both. Ann is a worrier, compulsively analyzing and judging their performance at each stage of the process. Leslie is soothing, a quiet counterpoint. Together they ride the menstrual roller coaster, until finally, one year later, Ann is pregnant. Winner: Someone to Watch Award at the Cleveland International Film Festival.
