Based on the best-selling novel by Jane Green, ‘Tempting Fate’ is a drama film that follows Gabby, a 42-year-old woman who appears to have a perfect life. She is married to Elliott, who undergoes a vasectomy without her permission. Gabby wants to have another child, so she sees this as betrayal, and in moments of emotional vulnerability, cheats on her husband. Her action has far-reaching consequences as her family falls apart while she tries to make amends.
As ‘Tempting Fate’ explores female infidelity in the context of modern families, the filming for the movie was limited to cities. The movie captures the consequences of a failing marriage, so it is not surprising that most scenes were shot indoors. Now, many viewers might wish to know where exactly was the movie filmed. Let’s have a look!
