The false positives surround a woman named Lucy who is trying to get pregnant with her husband Adrian. After two years of trial and error, Adrian persuaded Lucy to meet his old friend Dr. Hindle. Adrian and Lucy visited the famous fertility clinic led by Dr. Hindle. He assured Lucy that she would be pregnant soon. He told her that he would use a new IVF method he invented to achieve results. Sure enough, this method worked and Lucy became pregnant. Dr. Hindle’s method was so effective that Lucy became pregnant with triplets. However, certain complications can occur during pregnancy. In order to avoid any complications, Lucy was told to perform “selective reduction” surgery.
This process requires a difficult choice-she will either have twins or a girl. Lucy decided to keep the girl. Dr. Adrian and Hindle prefer to keep the boys. However, they finally agreed to Lucy’s choice. Lucy named her little daughter Wendy. But this is when things start to get a little messy. The creepy fertility comes into play, and so does the people around Lucy. She encountered some strange experiences and health complications. Adrian and Dr. Hindle behaved strangely, not to mention, creepy. After experiencing these creepy interactions too many times, Lucy suspects that her girl has been affected in some way. Lucy then began to secretly meet a midwife named Grace Singleton.
False positive ending explanation: Who gave birth to Lucy?
However, Lucy’s situation will only get worse. Soon after, she began to hallucinate. However, Dr. Hindle still insisted that it was just the “mother’s brain” that made her act and drug her. At the same time, Lucy finds it difficult to distinguish reality from fiction. She eventually found some documents that confirmed her suspicion of Dr. Hindle. She asked a friend for help, but later discovered that even she was an accomplice of Dr. Hindle. Lucy finally gave birth to the twin boys. The underdeveloped stillbirth girl was taken out of her body. Lucy understands that Dr. Hindle and Adrian have been planning to keep the boy without respecting her choice.
And Adrian believes that Lucy’s maternal instinct will come into play soon, and she will treat the baby boy kindly and forgive him. However, this is not Lucy’s idea. She was betrayed by Adrian and Dr. Hindle, and she wanted to stand up. She went to the fertility clinic and confronted Dr. Hindle. He revealed to Lucy that he used his sperm to make her pregnant. Lucy then attacked Hindall and his nurses, leaving them incapacitated. Afterwards, she returned to her twins’ home. We saw her holding the twins outside the window, and the baby started to float away.
What does the ending mean?
This surreal transition towards the end of False Positive turned out to be just a dream of Lucy. In fact, she handed the twins to Adrian and told him to go away. Then, she hugged Wendy’s immature fetus to her chest. Then we get another surreal scene where the stunted fetus begins to struggle in life. The false alarm ended with Lucy holding Wendy and sucking her nipples. The surreal and illusion ending is consistent with the rest of the movie, which is full of this imagery. False alarms are a type of modern Rosemary baby. However, this film takes a different approach to motherhood, and Lucy finally accepts her child. Although it looks like she is killing her twin babies, it turns out to be a fake.
The ending of False Positive is confusing. Faced with the sheer absurdity that runs through the entire movie, it provides ambiguity. Like Lucy, the audience cannot distinguish reality from illusion. Although Dr. Hindle and even Adrian acted like two strange and creepy people, it seems that all this is attributed to Lucy’s “mother’s brain”. The ending of False Positive allowed Lucy to accept and embrace her motherhood, not abandon the twins, and hallucinate Wendy.
