Netflix’s IVF Drama Starring James Norton & Bill Nighy

Netflix has shared the first teaser for Joy, the historical drama starring James Norton, Bill Nighy, and Thomasin McKenzie about the birth of IVF treatments. 

The film’s full synopsis reads: Joy tells the remarkable true story behind the ground-breaking birth of Louise Joy Brown in 1978, the world’s first ‘test-tube- baby’, and the tireless 10-year journey to make it possible. Told through the perspective of Jean Purdy, a young nurse, and embryologist, who joined forces with scientist Robert Edwards and surgeon Patrick Steptoe to unlock the puzzle of infertility by pioneering in vitro fertilization (IVF). The film celebrates the power of perseverance and the wonders of science as it follows this maverick trio of visionaries who overcame tremendous odds and opposition to realize their dream, and in doing so allowed millions of people to dream with them. 

The screenplay was penned by Jack Thorne. Story is from Thorne and Rachel Mason. Producers are Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey from Wildgaze and Executive Producer: is Cameron McCracken. Release dates have yet to be announced. Netflix has said the pic is “coming soon” to the streamer. 

Discussing the story, Thorne said: “It’s set between 1968 to 1978 and it’s a story of three people who worked together despite the whole world being against them to try and bring up the story of infertility. And we tell the story of the three of them.”

He added: “There’s Robert Edwards, who’s a scientist, Jean Purdy who works with him and who has never been given the credit for this that she deserves and hopefully this film resets that slightly. And Patrick Steptoe, who’s the surgeon and they don’t get any support from the Medical Research Council. They get abused in the press, they get abused by other people and they fight on, and it eventually results in the birth of Louise Joy Brown.”
