The Hulu original “False Positive” tells the story of a couple and their fertility experience and journey. Lucy (Glazer) and her husband Adrian (Justin Theroux), are stepping into parenthood which can be a scary experience for women because of personal expectations and the medical field can be a frightening encounter.

We sat down with Glazer and asked what was her inspiration behind telling this tale in the form of a horror story was.

I was interested in telling it this way because it was more about the way it felt at the time…talking about these topics. At the time, I was scared of that stage in life,” said Glazer.

Her character faces many struggles during her process of getting pregnant, which many women will relate to.  

False Positive” stands out as a film because it addresses the struggles most women deal with while pregnant or trying to get pregnant. From common issues like “mommy brain” to more serious issues like not being heard by doctors when you have a concern. Also, how modern-day medicine has changed childbirth and how women don’t have much power over their own bodies. This film is a thriller with a lot of informative moments.
