Our Father (2022). Our Father: Directed by Lucie Jourdan. With Donald Cline, Jacoba Ballard, Keith Boyle, Tim DeLaney. After a woman's at-home DNA test reveals multiple half-siblings, she discovers a shocking scheme involving donor sperm and a popular fertility doctor.
“Our Father is a disturbing tale of half-siblings finding each other and learning a very bitter truth in the process: their motheru0026#39;s fertility doctor is their biological father. The documentary holds nothing back, giving the siblings the opportunity to voice their perspectives and provide detailed statements on how this ordeal has overturned their lives at various points. Sperm donation is something that we saw being talked about in films such as Vicky Donor (in India) and Delivery Man (in US) – both light-hearted takes on the subject. But what makes all the difference here is that everything in the documentary happened in real life and more importantly, Dr. Cline very clearly knew what he was doing and still did it dozens of times, his motivation behind the acts still unknown.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe very fact that he lied and hid the truth accounts for the crime here. He fathered children and pretended like they werenu0026#39;t his. The evolution of DNA technology exposed him, however, the laws in the state couldnu0026#39;t bring him to justice and he remains a free man. Iu0026#39;m really enjoying Netflix bringing these stories to light – theyu0026#39;re honestly miles ahead of their original cinematic productions. And when we have such earth-shattering real-life incidents taking place around us, this is the least a streaming giant like Netflix can do. Well-made, nicely put together, extremely hard-hitting stuff.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYeah, this piece is a psychological horror-thriller of the highest order and one that sticks with you for all the wrong reasons!”
