There really is no love like a mother’s love. That’s what this film beautifully portrays. “Mother and Child” explores various mother-daughter relationships that really get to the core of how deep this connection is, especially when it is impacted by adoption. The cast is exceptional, as this really is an actor’s film. I must single out Kerry Washington, as I feel she finally landed a role that truly allowed her to show the talent that I knew she had all along. Annette Bening is also brilliant and so is Naomi Watts. It is way too early to call, but I think Benning and Washington could be in line for some Oscar buzz. It’s a shame that this wasn’t released later in the year during the Oscar season. I highly recommend this film, especially for women. So far, this is my favourite film of 2010.
I had a feeling I would enjoy this. This movie certainly lived up to its title, it really kicked ass! This was pure entertainment from start to finish. I haven’t had that much fun at the cinema all year. It was audaciously violent and crude, but I loved it. The fact that they weren’t superheroes at all (although Hit-Girl was quite extraordinary for an 11-year old) made it even cooler. I could definitely watch this movie again.
OMG! This movie was SCARY! Hands-down, scariest movie I have ever seen. I had chills throughout this whole movie. Seriously, I was shaking. During the end part I was frozen in shock, with my hands covering my mouth. I just finished watching this and right now the strong Cape winds are blowing and my door was just moving on its own. I hope I can get some sleep tonight. FML.
