THE SURROGATE on South Bay Film Society Virtual Cinema
June 12 - July 16
South By Southwest Film Festival selection
“This indie drama about a young African American woman who agrees to become pregnant for her gay interracial-couple best friends…touches vividly on numerous hot ethical and identity-politics topics without sermonizing in any direction. It’s an engrossing, very well-acted tale that will need viewer word of mouth to get the audience this “virtual theater” release deserves.” – Dennis Harvey, Variety
“There are no movie-of-the-week histrionics here, and zero moralizing… just perceptive, thoroughly absorbing, granular adult drama based on difficult questions to which there are no right or wrong answers, let alone easy ones.” – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
