Here is the question that has been confronting or even infuriating talented career women for eons. What are you going to do about your career now that you’re pregnant? That frustrating question is hard to hear when you are still stunned that there is a life growing inside you.
‘In Montauk’ is an independent feature film about life’s choices. Choices are easier to make when they are logical. Most men make just logical choices when it comes to their career. However, women live through a deluge of emotional choices when faced with a pregnancy in the middle of a successful career. ‘In Montauk’ is a feature film story that confronts the gender equity challenge of our time. Viewed through this lens is a new insight — a new dawning of the ethical implications of career versus motherhood. It shows the emotional perspective of a woman’s decisions. Pause for a moment and reflect on how many women you have known (including, perhaps yourself) who have faced this challenge.
The lead character, Julie Wagner (Nina Kaczorowski) is a professional photographer and she needs to make this choice. Add to this an emotional decision to have an affair.
The question is: What will she decide?
The answer may surprise you.
This film, ‘In Montauk’, makes us think beyond what will already be assumed.
The intrigue of ‘In Montauk’ and its authentic nature is why people are donating to help its release. It takes more than just making a great film –it also takes funding to get it properly marketed and out into the public to be seen. Authenticity is the best predictor of success and I predict this authentic film has the chance to be very successful. Be a part of knowing you helped get ‘In Montauk’ seen by the millions of people who will empathize with it’s story.
