“The Surrogate” is new movie from the US about Jess, a woman who agrees to be a surrogate for her best friends, Josh and Aaron. The film delves into the relationship between Jess and her friends after the fetus tests positive for Down syndrome, and the unique position Jess is put in. This review praises the film for centering real and difficult conversations related to surrogacy, abortion, and the lives of people with disabilities, and illuminating dynamics around race, gender, and sexual orientation. The trailer for the film is available here.
