From writer/director Katherine Dieckmann, the acclaimed filmmaker of DIGGERS and A GOOD BABY, comes MOTHERHOOD, starring Uma Thurman, Anthony Edwards and Minnie Driver. Shot entirely on location in New York’s West Village, this comedy distills the dilemmas of the maternal state (marriage, work, self, and not necessarily in that order) into the trials and tribulations of one pivotal day. Equal parts Mrs. Dalloway and “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” MOTHERHOOD forms a genre of one – no other movie has dedicated itself in quite this way to probing exactly what it takes to be a mother, with both wry humor and an acute sense of authenticity. MOTHERHOOD, a humorous and poignant look at the daily challenges mothers everywhere face, is a hymn to the trials and joys of raising children and the necessity of not losing yourself in the process.
