Really good movie: Mother and Child


I went and saw this movie with my sister a couple of weeks ago and we were both super excited because it has been yonkers since we went to the movies. We picked this one because it looked quality and it had received great reviews and because it was on at the cinema that all the rich wives (buttery highlights, excessive amounts of gold jewellery, acrylic nails, Chanel, Dior, Givenchy darling, you know the ones!) go to.

There was an exceptional cast for this film, Annette Bening, Samuel L. Jackson and Naomi Watts were awesome and there were some amazing performances by some relatively unknown actors as well.

This film really explores the relationship between a mother and a child, mainly following three women: one who was forced to give up her child for adoption after giving birth at the age of 14, one who is unable to conceive and looking to adopt, and one who was given up for adoption at birth. It is a really fascinating exploration of what makes one a mother. Beautiful and incredibly moving.

I really want to see this one! It's rare that I get out to see a movie that doesn't appeal to 9-13 year old boys, unfortunately...
