Synopsis:
John Sayles possesses many gifts as a filmmaker, but none greater than his ability to dive into a community and explore how it works.
In "Casa De Los Babys", a group of six women seeking to adopt children from an unnamed Latin American country are forced to remain in the country by red tape: Darryl Hannah plays a body-obsessed women who lost three children at birth; Marcia Gay Harden is a pushy, archetypal Ugly American; Mary Steenburgen is a born-again Christian and recovering alcoholic; Lili Taylor plays an edgy, single New York editor who wants a baby but not a man; Maggie Gyllenhaal is a tremulous young married woman seeking to salvage her failing marriage by adopting a child; and Susan Lynch portrays a poor Irish-American woman from Boston emotionally invested in the "idea" of having a baby. Touching and sometimes heart-breaking, Sayles' examination of what adoption means on both sides of the supply-demand equation captures the need, desperation, and sadness of an arrangement that, whatever good may ultimately come of it, exacts a cost that extends far beyond lawyers' fees and plane tickets...
