Having a baby becomes a lot more nerve-wracking in the chiller premiering next month.

FALSE POSITIVE, from writer/director John Lee and writer/star Ilana Glazer, first screens at the Tribeca Film Festival June 17-18 and then becomes available exclusively on Hulu June 25. The film also stars Justin Theroux, Gretchen Mol, Sophia Bush and Pierce Brosnan; the synopsis: “After months of trying and failing to get pregnant, Lucy [Glazer] and Adrian [Theroux] finally find their dream fertility doctor in the illustrious Dr. Hindle [Brosnan]. But after becoming pregnant with a healthy baby girl, Lucy begins to notice something sinister through Hindle’s gleaming charm, and she sets out to uncover the unsettling truth about him and her own ‘birth story.’ As if getting pregnant weren’t complicated enough…”
