Shot entirely on location in New York's West Village, MOTHERHOOD is a comedy distilling the dilemmas of the maternal state into the trials and tribulations of one pivotal day. MOTHERHOOD forms a genre of one - no other movie has dedicated itself quite this way to probing exactly what it takes to be a mother, with both humour and authenticity. HERHOOD, a funny and poignant look at the daily challenges mothers everywhere face, is a hymn to the and joys of raising children and the necessity of not losing yourself in the process.
Boasting a stellar cast lead by UMA THURMAN, and including MINNIE DRIVER, ANTHONY EDWARDS and SAMANTHA BEE, MOTHERHOOD is a "pleasing, light-hearted look at the Mommy wars" (Hollywood Reporter)
Review: Eliza Welsh (Uma Thurman) takes us on a journey into motherhood. Starting the day like any other, where her focus is around 2 small children, we see a true portrayal of what it means to be a mother, and how it's very easy to get lost in the everyday servatude of motherhood. With unscheduled interruptions, including a film crew in her street, Eliza sets out to prepare for her daughters 6th birthday party. But a disasterous morning sets in motion her desire to reclaim a little piece of her old self. She comes across and offer for a writing job, with the application a 500 word piece on what it means to be a mother. As her day continues to spiral out of control, Eliza is left hanging on by a thread, but what she discovers is her children, herself and the magic that she thought she had lost.
