MOVIE OF THE WEEK: Mother and Child

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.
