According to the Mayo Clinic, a widely respected academic medical center in the U.S., about 10-20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage.
But despite its relative “commonality,” the experience is emotionally destabilizing and extremely traumatizing. And few are comfortable talking about it.
Hence my attraction to “GOOD GRIEF,” a new film written and directed by Rob Sharp, and starring Vicky McClure. In it, we follow four women who have undergone a loss. And while it may, at times, be “brutally honest,” the ultimate goal, according to Sharp, is “to offer viewers a glimmer of hope and comfort; to allow people to heal.”
But raising funds in this economic climate is also brutal, which is why the team has initiated a crowdfunding campaign.
For a limited time, in exchange for a contribution, they're offering such “perks” as a social media shout-out, a digital copy of the film, posters, screen savers, your voice in the picture, to acknowledgment in the credits.

Queen Elizabeth II famously noted that, “Grief is the price we pay for love.”
Let us share the love, in the form of “Good Grief.”
