Detailed item info

Writer/director Rodrigo García (NINE LIVES) teams with executive producer Alejandro González Iñárritu to craft this drama highlighting the powerful bond between a mother and her son. It's been years since Karen (Annette Bening) gave her daughter, Elizabeth, up for adoption, and the decision to abandon her child has always haunted her. Upon meeting laid-back Paco (Jimmy Smits), Karen permits her anxiety and mistrust to get the best of her. On the surface it appears that Elizabeth (Naomi Watts) is none the worse for never knowing her biological mother; she's a fast-talking lawyer who's just landed a high-profile job at a firm fronted by Paul (Samuel L. Jackson), though her unsavory penchant for exploiting others is about to blow up in her face. Meanwhile, maternal-minded baker Lucy (Kerry Washington) longs to experience the joys of motherhood, eventually deciding that adoption is the best bet to start a family with her husband, Joseph (David Ramsey).

3 stars out of 4 -- “Dynamite performances from Annette Bening and Naomi Watts ignite this strong drama from writer-director Rodrigo Garcia.”
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (05/13/2010)

"[D]ense and thoughtful....A more precise title might have been MOTHER AND DAUGHTER, since continuities and complexities in the lives and relationships of women are what most interest Mr. Garcia."
New York Times - A. O. Scott (05/07/2010)

"Garcia's calm, steady guidance behind the camera, along with his nicely finessed faith in a very good cast, makes MOTHER AND CHILD a fuller and more satisfying example of this storytelling style..."
Los Angeles Times - Michael Phillips (05/07/2010)

3 stars out of 4 -- "[S]uperb performances add to the story's power....The story is best when focused on the threads linking the intricate tapestry of mothers and daughters."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (05/07/2010)

"Each in their own way, they're women on the run in a film whose focus -- slowly and movingly -- shifts to capturing the cost of running too far too long." -- Grade: B
A.V. Club - Keith Phipps (05/06/2010)

3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The film is founded on three performances by Annette Bening, Kerry Washington and Naomi Watts. All have rarely been better."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (05/19/2010)

"With MOTHER AND CHILD, Rodrigo Garcia poses a number of intriguing questions about the nature of maternity....While all of these women are types, the actresses dignify them with the emotional force of their performances."
Movieline - Michelle Orange (05/05/2010)

3 stars out of 5 -- "The four main actors are all on fine form, with Bening particularly strong as the permanently crabby singleton and Watts thoroughly convincing as a sexually promiscuous vixen."
Total Film - James Mottram (02/01/2012)
