Doctors Angela (Gina Gershon) and Brian (Nicolas Cage) are looking to have another child. However as Angela can’t have or carry a child this means they need a surrogate. Following a set of circumstances that leave the couple struggling to have their dream come true they ask Angela’s new friend Katie (Nicky Whelan). However Katie is not all she seems to be!
Style / Direction
The film is directed by Jonathan Baker whilst Brandon Cox is responsible for the cinematography.
Music / Audio Effects
The music is provided by Kevin Kiner.
Acting / Characters
Let’s get straight to the point this really isn’t a Nicolas Cage movie. The focus is very much on the two leads Gina Gershon and Nicky Whelan.
Both actresses do a well with Gina Gershon’s character struggling with drug addiction and insecurities. Meanwhile Nicky Whelan is excellent as the rather neurotic Katie. She has that disturbing look that says beware!
- Gina Gershon as Angela
- Nicky Whelan as Katie
- Nicolas Cage as Brian
- Faye Dunaway as Donna
- Natalie Eva Marie as Linda
Conclusion: Inconceivable (2017) Film Review
Inconceivable is extremely unbelievable and requires you to suspend your natural instinct to say why is she doing this or you wouldn’t do that. That said it is fiction so some of these things are needed to advance the plot to the ultimate climax in which both women confront each other. Which side will Brian (Nicolas Cage) take? You’ll have to watch the movie to find out.
Overall Inconceivable (2017) is not a terrible thriller in fact both leads produce fine performances. It falls short in several areas such as the writing. That said I’d say its still worth a look.

Conclusion: Inconceivable Blu-ray Review
Unfortunately Inconceivable has yet to receive a UK blu-ray relase leaving the only option as a foriegn version with English as an option. There are no issues to report in the picture quality department being a film from 2017. There are also no extras included and I’m fine with that.
On to my movie rating for Inconceivable (2017)
- Movie Rating: WORTH A LOOK
- Blu-ray Picture: PERFECT
- Extras: NONE
