August 32nd on Earth


Time Out says

An intriguing but only partly successful oddity about a woman who decides after a car accident that she wants an old friend (married but clearly harbouring a long term crush on her) to father her child; he agrees on condition that conception occurs in the desert - easier said than done. There are striking images here (especially in the scenes outside Salt Lake City), Martin gives a very likeable performance, and individual scenes display intelligence and wit. But it doesn't hang together very well, jump-cutting between slightly portentous artiness and light comedy, and never really adding up to very much at all.
