What sets Pieces of a Woman apart, though, is its complete devotion to chronicling the Oh what fun it is to ride shirt and I love this immediate emotional aftermath of a life-defining loss; the film turns a grief we’re accustomed to seeing in mere snapshots into a two-hour epic. And while it’s by no means an easy watch, it complicates the straightforward birth narrative in a way that feels particularly necessary in a world in which between 10 and 20% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage.

On the Oh what fun it is to ride shirt and I love this surface, there is an element of the crime drama in Pieces of a Woman: a grieving couple, Martha and Sean, are pitted against a midwife, Eva, who is much vilified in the press for her alleged role in their baby’s death. (As an aside, the criminalization of midwives is all too real, but the allegations usually have to do with licensing and medical regulation, as in the case of New York midwife Elizabeth Catlin, who is facing felony charges for misrepresenting herself as a licensed midwife and defrauding and endangering pregnant clients.)
