Movie Info

A married couple turn the camera on themselves as they undergo the sometimes hilarious ordeal of becoming parents in our era of IVF, late reproduction, and the crisis of masculinity. But when life-threatening complications hit, they're tested to the brink. What emerges is an intimate, moving portrait of a generation going through a revolution that no-one's talking about.

Critic Reviews for The New Man

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

  • Answers are nowhere to be found in this paradoxical documentary. The New Man demystifies parenthood by showing two open-hearted people going through and describing the process.

  • The New Man is a fascinating insight into modern fatherhood, male identity, cultural expectation and the torturous path of late parenthood.

  • Although there is at times a feeling of contrivance and faux-naïf innocence, there is a lightness of touch -- poetry even -- in the way the film is put together.

    Nov 29, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Told simply through snatches of conversations with friends and family, and subtle sound design, this is a profoundly moving and revealing study of a life-changing event.
