NEXT ON NETFLIX | JOY | TEASER | RELEASING ON NETFLIX IN 2024

From producers of An Education and Brooklyn, JOY is based on the remarkable true story of the world’s first “test-tube baby” Louise Joy Brown.

During last week’s Next On Netflix UK event, Netflix debuted a first look teaser for JOY, which is released globally today. At the event, writers Rachel Mason and Jack Thorne participated in a panel about the film.

Joy tells the remarkable true story behind the ground-breaking birth of Louise Joy Brown in 1978, the world’s first ‘test-tube- baby’, and the tireless 10-year journey to make it possible. Told through the perspective of Jean Purdy, a young nurse and embryologist, who joined forces with scientist Robert Edwards and surgeon Patrick Steptoe to unlock the puzzle of infertility by pioneering in vitro fertilisation (IVF). The film celebrates the power of perseverance and the wonders of science as it follows this maverick trio of visionaries who overcame tremendous odds and opposition to realise their dream, and in doing so allowed millions of people to dream with them.
