Mother and Child

5 years, 5 months ago at Sep 6 1:20
The title is appropriate in more than just one sense. MOTHER AND CHILD is the latest film from Rodrigo Garcia, who made the equally wonderful and nuanced NINE LIVES back in 2005. MOTHER AND CHILD consists of three interconnected stories. Two of them are merely decent, but the third one is so great that it elevates this film into being more than just good, mostly thanks to a magnificent, devastatin... read more

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a nice cast, I thought I should check it out. Eventually, even though Roger Ebert was really enthusiast, even though I myself enjoyed many things about this flick, I still ended up with some mixed feelings. Indeed, it deals with 3 stories, all about women whose lives have been influenced by the adoption process. The first issue is ... read more

From Best to Worst: Samuel L. Jackson (92 movies items)

"Though it occasionally veers into unnecessary melodrama, Mother and Child benefits from a stellar cast and writer-director Rodrigo Garcia's finely detailed, bravely unsentimental script."

“I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a nice cast, I thought I should check it out. Eventually, even though Roger Ebert was really enthusiast, even though I myself enjoyed many things about this flick, I still ended up with some mixed feelings. Indeed, it deals with 3 stories, all about women whose lives have been influenced by the adoption process. The first issue is that two of those stories were clearly linked whereas the last one (dealing with Kerry Washington) didn’t have anything to do with the rest until the end when they linked everything together. As a result, the whole thing felt really contrived and I wish they kept it more anchored in reality like the rest of the movie. Furthermore, I thought that Karen (very well portrayed by Annette Bening) chan” read more

Top Films of 2010 (20 movies items)

"On the surface none of them seem like nice people, but writer-director Rodrigo Garcia ends up displaying fantastically the ability for change. They are human and weak and often the weakest of people need something to pull themselves up. I'm not saying "Mother and Child" is all tears or all smiles by the end, but it's real."

“The title is appropriate in more than just one sense. MOTHER AND CHILD is the latest film from Rodrigo Garcia, who made the equally wonderful and nuanced NINE LIVES back in 2005. MOTHER AND CHILD consists of three interconnected stories. Two of them are merely decent, but the third one is so great that it elevates this film into being more than just good, mostly thanks to a magnificent, devastating performance from Naomi Watts, who I continue to believe is today's best working actress.

The film opens with a 14-year-old girl who decides to have sex with her boyfriend, and we immediately find out that she got pregnant and gave birth to a girl. We move ahead 37 years in time. Now 51, Karen (Annette Bening) clearly lives a melancholy life, as she thinks about the baby that she gave a” read more
