Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The basic idea, that Karen would make donations from her own body to save her husband, is not unlike the way family members often give blood or donate organs today. The scale and consequences are just much larger.

Con: They communicate so poorly that it’s hard to see them as a long-established happy couple.
