Product Description

Product Description

A black comedy set in the contrasting worlds of a dilapidated North London council house, a middle class dinner party in a Fulham mansion block and an expensive psychiatrist's couch. Drug fuelled sex with a vicar and lustful longings for other women, are there some things a girl shouldn't share with her mother?


Jean Boht Gives a powerful performance, sometimes almost too powerful to watch --The Daily Mail<br /><br />Good performance, pacing and sharp script --Variety

HASH(0x9dba75e8) out of 5 stars Has the feel of a higher budget Lifetime movie that, for me at least, wasn't a hardship to watch. 4 Jun. 2016
By Tony Heck - Published on
"If I'm gonna do this then I need to know what I'm really capable of." Four stories of the relationships between mothers and daughters are explored in this movie. The stories involve deception, adoption, abortion, re-connection and of course love. This is a hard movie for me to review, mainly because I am a man, and a father. Not saying that I can't relate to this movie, or these stories, but because it had the feel of a Lifetime type movie and it just isn't my thing. This was better quality, and had a better cast than most of those type of movies but the overall idea and feel felt like it could have been on that channel. The acting is actually really good and everyone plays their part perfectly, which really adds to the emotion the movie is trying for. Even though the movie wasn't aimed toward me it wasn't bad, but a movie that women, mothers and daughters, will love a lot more than me I think. Overall, has the feel of a higher budget Lifetime movie that, for me at least, wasn't a hardship to watch. I give this a B.

HASH(0x9dbaeba0) out of 5 stars It's still better than Mother's Day 22 May 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Two similarly-themed movies with the title "Mother's Day" were racing to theaters at the same time, in hopes of capitalizing on the holiday for dear ol' Mom. The first and starriest was last week's awful and casually racist film by Garry Marshall, the third and hopefully final entry in his unholy series. The other, which features recognizable but less bankable stars, was forced into the bland title of "Mothers and Daughters", and also tells multiple interconnected stories about the joys and pains of motherhood. While it's certainly the classier of the two films, it's also so dry and forgettable that you'll be begging for anyone to say something offensive.

It's like somebody has some kind of personal vendetta against Moms with all the crappy movies being made about them. Directed by Paul Duddridge and Nigel Levy, Mothers and Daughters could have been plucked from the Lifetime Movie "rejection" pile. Each story is either wildly heavy-handed in its message, unbearably clichéd, or woefully unsatisfying. The cast is a collection of talented actresses you wish were in something much better. Selma Blair gets the centerpiece role as Rigby, a hip Manhattan photographer on the verge of a big career break shooting a famous rock star ("Agents of SHIELD"'s Luke Mitchell), until she discovers she's pregnant. D'oh! Decisions decisions! Does she have the baby, or get an abortion? Or does she enter into an awkward romance with her hot married doctor (Quinton Aaron), who seems to have no problem flirting with his patients?

Other stories are little more than extended vignettes, and as such don't go far beyond needs of the plot. Sharon Stone plays Nina, a titan of the fashion industry, who can't stand how her talented daughter Nina (Alexandra Daniels) is wasting her life as a waitress. Courteney Cox is Beth, who is forced to reveal a bombshell of a family secret to Becca (Christina Ricci) that threatens to destroy all of their lives; Mira Sorvino is Georgina, who has a new line of “haute couture" bras ready to launch, a supermodel boyfriend, and a secret connection to another character in the film. It's not hard to figure out who it is, honestly. Nothing is very complicated here. You'll spend most of the time wondering how there can be such an incredible lack of diversity in a multi-tiered film like this with such an expansive cast.

While most of these brief little stories hold little emotional depth, another shows the potential of what the film could have been. Susan Sarandon (who was just in the far superior maternal comedy The Meddler) and her real-life daughter Eva Amurri Martino bring real dramatic weight to the complicated relationship between a mother who is trying to get back in the life of her estranged daughter Gale who split when the family rejected her ambitious boyfriend. In one brilliant, contentious interaction (with Sarandon on FaceTime or something) everything the film has to say about the mother/daughter bond is captured, as Gale pleads for her mother's support while pushing her away at the same time. Who knows if Sarandon and Amurri were channeling some of their own past grievances but the authenticity of that brief squabble is the realest thing "Mothers and Daughters" has to offer.

HASH(0x9dbaeb70) out of 5 stars Better than I thought it would be. 13 July 2016
By Michelle Sutton - Published on
Okay I thought this movie looked interesting based on the trailer but in reality it was much better than the trailer made it sound. It wasn't just about conflict but it was about healing and about different kinds of mothers both natural and adoptive mothers. It was a solid representation of what makes being a mother so special. I even got tearful a few times. Made me miss my mom. And now my kids are adults so I miss being the mom. It made me remember the fools old days when I was raising my own children. It was just a good movie with better than usual acting. I loved it!
HASH(0x9dbae15c) out of 5 stars A stellar cast with excellent storyline and acting. Never a dull moment! 24 Jun. 2016
By Dee J. - Published on
We were looking forward to a delightful film, given the cast and were not disappointed! Yes, not all is happily-ever-after, but such is life and this film depicts more reality than a farce like Mother's Day. But the relationships are very real and the writing and acting are finely honed. Please get a DVD for yourself and a friend - everyone should make sure to watch "Mothers and Daughters"!
