Casa De Los Babys

  • Casa De Los Babys
  • Maggie Gyllenhaal, Daryl Hannah
  • Directed by John Sayles

Six women establish residence in a hotel in Latin America in order to adopt a baby. Indie legend John Sayles (Lone Star, Sunshine State) gathers a fine cast (Maggie Gyllenhaal, Marcia Gay Harden, Daryl Hannah, Susan Lynch, Lili Taylor, Mary Steenburgen) and kicks around potent ideas about child trafficking. But the film feels more like a thesis than vivid drama.
