Movie Summary

Director:
Rodrigo Garcia
Released:
2010
Rating:
R
Three women's lives share a common core: they have all been profoundly affected by adoption. Karen had a baby at 14, gave her up at birth, and has been haunted ever since by the daughter she never knew. Elizabeth grew up as an adopted child; she's a bright and ambitious lawyer, but a flinty loner in her personal life. Lucy is just embarking with her husband on the adoption odyssey, looking for a baby to become their own.

Metacritic Score

  • 88

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    The film is founded on three performances by Annette Bening, Kerry Washington and Naomi Watts. All have rarely been better.

  • 80

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    An insightfully observed and exceptionally acted ensemble piece precisely about what the title suggests.

  • 60

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    You may not quite trust Mother and Child -- its soft spots and fuzzy edges give it away -- but you can believe just about everyone in it.
