Desperate to be rid of her toddler in order to have an affair, a dissatisfied Beverly Hills Housewife hires a stranger to babysit and ends up getting much more than she bargained for. "Mother" is a dark and funny look at neglect, and what it really means to get what we want.Written by
As I started to watch it I had some uncertainty about it, but it quickly engaged and I was hooked in. The film raises some very interesting question about morality and the concept of right and wrong.
The excellent performance by Ashleigh Sumner as Lu, draws you in and keeps you close, as Lu deals with the hand fate has dealt her. She speaks in volumes, despite the small amount of actual dialog afforded to her character.
Writer/Director Sian Heder, really does a good job of keeping the film tight and showing us the story, as opposed to telling.
I would highly recommend this film if you get the opportunity to see it.
