CAST & CREW
MORE CAST & CREW
The movie Mothers and Daughters brims with stars that we know very well. It is a low-budget movie chiefly relying on the characters in it. The movie is a directorial venture by Paul Duddridge and it hit the screens during the Mother’s Day Weekend. One would get a full idea of how the movie is after reading the review below.
The movie’s story intersects at a point of time in the movie. It projects the pain, the resultant tears out of it, and the final consolations. The plot begins with a woman who is pregnant. Her obstetrician cannot perform procedure on her because he has fallen in love with her. Initially the story starts with Selma Blair and audiences assume that the story is just about to progress ahead smoothly. One among the movie’s characters is contacted by her daughter who separated long time back. There is another daughter in the movie who wants to reunite with her mother. There are many such characters scattered across in the movie.
The cast in the movie includes Susan Sarandon, Sharon Stone, Courteney Cox, Chrtisina Ricci and Mira Sorvino. The actresses who have done the characters have huge potential that is wasted away in the movie.
There are many lines that the story follows. This consumes considerable amount of time. The movie’s screenwriter Paige Cameron fails to captivate the emotions in the charactersThere is no subtlety in the movie. Everything is as blatant as it could be. It is all a video conference call that could attract audiences with similar taste. There is no continuity in the narration. Also, the characters lack the much required emotion. The story appears to be just a patchwork.

What is not there?
It is not a movie worth watching, and would not prove to be a fine weekend treat.
