A GOOD EGG
A GOOD EGG is a comedic drama that tells the story of 37-year old Mimi who is eight weeks pregnant and going for her first ultrasound. When something looks wrong with the fetus, her whole world begins to tumble down around her. Mimi’s boyfriend, Patrick, seems totally out of touch. In flashback, we see Mimi go to a follow-up doctor’s appointment where the physician says if she wants to have a baby, she should do it immediately. Mimi’s free-spirited best friend, Rachel, pushes Mimi out of her sadness, encouraging her to just get what she wants. That night, Mimi has sex with Patrick and we see that Mimi is willing to get pregnant no matter what Patrick thinks.
Mimi quickly realizes she may be pregnant. When she tells Patrick she’s not sure if it will work, he tells her she waited too long. Mimi walks out the door and away from the unfulfilling life she would have had with Patrick. We wonder if she’s on the road to having a baby herself or to finding someone new, or both.
