Having tried everything from natural conception to in vitro fertilization, Richard and Rachel’s failed attempts at pregnancy have exhausted them and depleted their bank accounts. With Rachel’s biological clock running out, their doctor suggests they seek an egg donor.
“He’s out of his mind!” Hahn’s Rachel says in the trailer. But when their step-niece Sadie (Kayli Carter) drops out of Bard College and moves in with them, the couple decide to ask her to donate.
Private Life is the first starring role for Carter, who previously played Sadie Rose on Netflix’s Western series Godless.
The film also stars Molly Shannon, John Carroll Lynch and Denis O’Hare.
Jenkins wrote, directed and co-produced the movie alongside Anthony Bregman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and Stefanie Azpiazu (The Circle).
Private Life, which premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, is set to arrive Oct. 5 in select theaters and on Netflix.
