Option to Renew by Margaret Martinello Magner, Ph.D.
Babette O’Connor -- a high-powered marketing executive with a Harvard MBA – has no luck with men. Determined to solve her problem by applying business best practices to her love life, she is busy interviewing a series of highly educated and attractive men with the help of her lawyer. The lucky finalist will sign a three-year personal services contract to become Babette’s live-in companion – with an option to renew. Her perpetually pregnant younger sister is intrigued and scandalized by this romantic strategy. But all hell breaks loose when the one man capable of eluding Babette’s control shows up at her door. Who will win this classic battle of the sexes? Watch this delightful screwball comedy – reexamining the role of contemporary men and women -- to find out.
