What People Are Saying

"...equally impressive in its pared-down storytelling is Emma Savage’s Sell-By Date, starring Daisy Haggard as a thirty-something woman struggling to conceive with a partner who’s increasingly disheartened by the process. Coming across as a sort of cross between Green Wing and a superior mid-90s British rom-com, it’s much slyer in what it has to say about the expectations and ennui of trying for a baby. The fact that it’s also big-hearted and frequently very funny doesn’t hurt either." Ben Fowler, Londonist http://londonist.com/2012/10/london-film-festival-review-london-calling.php
