Movie Info

Expecting: a 24-hour "labour party" for eight diverse people gathering to witness and participate in a homebirth. Tensions run high as midnight cravings, stalled labour and expectations abound. Free-spirited Stephanie is a single, pregnant performance artist living in a downtown loft. Premature labour pains begin after a torrid sex-a-thon. Caught off guard, she phones her closest friends and family to rally them to her side. One by one the participants arrive to support her in their singular ways.Anita, Steph's domineering older sister, worries about Steph's freewheeling lifestyle and wants a hospital birth. Gary, a food photographer, Steph's friend and occasional lover, desperately plans his marriage proposal to her. Dani, an entertainment reporter and Steph's best friend, has agreed to act as Steph's labour coach but would rather focus on her next romantic conquest. Julia, Steph's midwife and Anita's estranged childhood friend, tries to maintain calm in the midst of chaos. Ian, Steph's current "New Age" lover, deeply wants to become a dad. Jack, Anita's perfect husband, wants to rekindle the spark in his failing marriage. Finally there's Azaan, Steph's creative collaborator and neighbour, who brings some spiritual harmony to the occasion.This ensemble is forced to come to terms with each other and to re-examine their own lives. Expecting is about birth, rebirth, and all the contractions in between. -- © Expecting Productions
