Coming Soon: More Infertility Films on the Way 

"Forget about the venerable beat-the-clock thriller," says Canadian columnist Michael D. Reid. "Today, the beat-the-biological-clock flick is the thing."

That trend continues next month with Miss Conception, a comedy about the escapades of a 33-year-old woman (Heather Graham) with a family history of early menopause and an unsupportive boyfriend. The reluctantly seductive woman's frantic quest to find a "Mr. Right Now" thrusts her into contact with Internet sperm donors, nightclubbers and a smitten co-worker.
Also coming soon: Jennifer Tilly and Andie McDowell in Inconceivable, Mary McGuckian's satire about "the immaculate deception" facing infertile couples, singles, lesbians and gay men who use "assisted reproductive technology."
