The trailer for the upcoming Pregnancy Is BAD: A Pregnancy Movie is out, and it’s one of the most provocative films of the year.
But the movie’s title, “Pregnancy is Bad,” isn’t really a title.
It’s more like a manifesto.
“Pregaking is a lot of the stuff that makes up a pregnant woman’s life,” director and producer Jada Pinkett-Smith tells me.
The idea came from Pinkett Smith, who’s been pregnant since she was a teenager.
She wanted to make a movie that talked about a pregnant person’s life and the way she lives it.
“I wanted to do something that would address that issue and that would be honest,” Pinkett says.
“And then, after the birth of our daughter, I wanted to take it to the next level, to tell a story that was about the idea of being pregnant.”
The movie takes place in an apartment in New York City, where a pregnant man (Kirsten Dunst) is trying to get his life together after he loses his job and his wife in a tragic car accident.
He’s trying to make amends and figure out what’s wrong with his life.
And that’s when things start getting messy.
The story centers around a pregnant and depressed woman named Jenny (Dawn Michaels), who was a regular at a bar and frequented a women’s clothing store, where she and her husband bought the clothes of the store’s employees.
The store was a safe haven for Jenny’s depression, but it also housed a new, and potentially dangerous, clientele.
“When she was pregnant, I think that was the first time I ever saw that kind of thing happening to anybody, that it’s a part of her life,” Pinkitt says.
She believes that it was the woman who gave her the idea for the movie.
“She was just so devastated, and I felt like that was my responsibility to speak to,” Pinketts says.
That’s when she saw the trailer.
“That was like the beginning of my search,” she says.
The woman she’s talking about is Jenny’s former co-worker, Stephanie (Beth Rimes), a pregnant actress who has just gotten back from the maternity leave.
“We all had a different relationship with her, because she was always the one to say no to things,” Pinkette says.
Stephanie was a constant presence in Jenny’s life.
She’d come to the apartment for appointments, she’d take her kids to the park, she would babysit for the baby.
“It’s like the kind of girl that you would never, ever want to hurt,” she recalls.
“You just love her so much, and you don’t want to harm her.
But she had to be there for her child, and then I felt that that was her time to take care of him.”
Stephanie and Jenny became good friends, and soon, Stephanie began to see the movie as a means of dealing with her depression.
“If I was going to deal with it, it would have to be with the help of the other people around me,” Stephanie says.
So she decided to go ahead and get pregnant.
But things didn’t go as planned.
Jenny didn’t think it was fair to her employer and her boss.
“So the next time she was sick, she told me to go to work,” Pinket says.
But Stephanie says the women who were there with her knew they weren’t going to do a good job of caring for her.
“They didn’t even have the decency to call her,” she said.
“Because I didn’t know who she was, and what she was going through.
I didn and I wasn’t able to get through that.
I was like, ‘I can’t tell anybody because I don’t know her,'” she says, tears rolling down her face.
“Then, one day, a pregnant friend of mine came in and said, ‘She’s pregnant, right?’
And I was, like, Oh my God, I just saw her.
I just started crying.”
So Stephanie went to work.
She went to her boss and told him what happened, and he called a meeting and everyone listened to what she had say.
The boss came back and said he was sorry for not giving Stephanie enough time to be able to go back to work, Pinkett said.
But it wasn’t until after she went to court that Stephanie got her legal rights back.
“My daughter is still a baby, and so I’m not going to let her go through this again,” Stephanie said to the judge.
“The way I feel about pregnancy is that I’m a mother of a young child, so if I can’t help my daughter, my daughter will be lost.
Now, it’s not that I don of course feel
