Movie Info

For empty nesters, what's the difference between letting your children grow up and letting them grow distant? This year, on Mother's Day, feeling marginalized and forgotten, long time friends Carol (Angela Bassett), Gillian (Patricia Arquette) and Helen (Felicity Huffman) decide to drive to New York to reconnect with their adult sons, and in the process, they realize their sons are not the only ones whose lives need to change. A journey to relate becomes a journey of rediscovery that forces these women to redefine their relationships with their children, friends, spouses and most importantly, themselves. Written and directed by Cindy Chupack (Sex and the City), OTHERHOOD is a soulful, hilarious and honest exploration of life after motherhood.

The three lead actresses also produced the film, presumably because there are not enough good roles for women over 35. They need to look a little harder.

August 2, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A banal, by-the-numbers waste of three first-rate actresses.
