     May 4, 2010

Opening this Friday is writer-director Rodrigo Garcia’s (Nine Lives, Big Love, In Treatment) Mother and Child.  Starring Annette Bening, Kerry Washington, Naomi Watts and Samuel L. Jackson, the film is about three women whose lives share a common core: they have all been profoundly affected by adoption.  The film is currently sitting at 88% on Rotten Tomatoes, which means the movie works.  Hit the jump for 8 clips from the film and a more detailed synopsis:

Here’s the official synopsis followed by the clips.

Three women’s lives share a common core: they have all been profoundly affected by adoption. KAREN (Annette Bening) had a baby at 14, gave her up at birth, and has been haunted ever since by the daughter she never knew. ELIZABETH (Naomi Watts) grew up as an adopted child; she’s a bright and ambitious lawyer, but a flinty loner in her personal life. LUCY (Kerry Washington) is just embarking with her husband on the adoption odyssey, looking for a baby to become their own.

From writer-director Rodrigo Garcia (Nine Lives, Big Love, In Treatment, The Sopranos) and executive producer Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel) comes the moving story of three women (Annette Bening, Naomi Watts and Kerry Washington) and the power of the unbreakable bond between mother and child.  Produced by Lisa Maria Falcone and Julie Lynn.

As always, are the clips are in the player below.  Once you push play you might have to watch a pre-roll ad and then all the clips will play in order.  Sorry about the pre-roll, it pays for the bandwidth.
