    Friends With Kids - Written and Directed by Jennifer Westfeldt

    What's interesting about Friends with Kids is that Jennifer Westfeldt has the skills to make a film feel subversive and mainstream at the same time.  The story she tells (which she also produces and directs) is about best friends who want a kid even though they haven't found the partner...
