I applaud Rosanna Arquestte for approaching these topics and find it
interesting to see these actresses as themselves. However, I find
myself shaking my head at most of their responses to balancing their
careers and motherhood. It is like they have never heard this
discussion before, and that they are unique in finding themselves
facing this problem. Many woman - and many men who are primary
caregivers - are faced with this agonizing dilemma. It is extremely
difficult to be both a mother and be passionate about your chosen
career. The big difference between these actresses and most women is
that most of us can't afford qualified help (such as a nanny) to help
ease the burden.
A far more interesting question, which arose out of the interviews, was asking why there are so few roles for women over 40, and why women in Hollywood need to be attractive but men do not.
