First Look: Netflix's 'Joy' Tells the Story of the World's First IVF Baby

Netflix’s upcoming film Joy is based on the real-life story of the world’s first IFV baby.

The film was directed by Ben Taylor, also known for Sex Education, as he worked on one of the series episodes. The screenplay is done by Jack Thorne and his wife, Rachel Mason.

“Set in the 1960s and 1970s, the story follows a nurse (McKenzie), a visionary scientist (Norton), and an innovative surgeon (Nighy) as they work to develop the first ‘test tube baby’.”

Netflix has released the first look of the film on Monday. The first teaser trailer gives us the first look at the film’s three central characters.

Purdy addresses a room of women and says, “Without you, none of this works.”
