MOTHER AND CHILD Movie Picture with Samuel L. Jackson & Naomi Watts
Check out the first picture for MOTHER AND CHILD featuring Samuel L. Jackson and Naomi Watts.
I am really loving this picture. It’s so simple, but at the same time I want to know the story behind it. On top of that Rodrigo Garcia is directing, which gives me high hopes for Mother and Child since I loved 21 Grams (also starring Naomi Watts). I am definitely going to be keeping an eye out for this movie.
Mother and Child also stars Annette Bening, Kerry Washington, Jimmy Smits, and David Ramsey, and is part of the Gala Presentations lineup at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. So you definitely might want to check it out there.
Mother and Child Synopsis: Annette Bening shines as Karen, a woman grown bitter by habit since she gave up her daughter for adoption years ago. Naomi Watts is her daughter Elizabeth, now a sleek lawyer with a lust for power games. She talks her way into a job at a firm led by Paul (Samuel L. Jackson, playing a rare character who doesn’t hold the upper hand). This mother and daughter don’t know each other, but their natures seem to fit together. All that’s missing is human warmth.
This comes in the form of Kerry Washington as Lucy, a baker longing for a child of her own. Passionate about parenthood to a degree that her husband, Joseph (David Ramsey), questions, she finally decides they must adopt.
