Annette Bening Interview MOTHER AND CHILD

by     Posted 4 years, 229 days ago

Acclaimed for her work on screen and in the theater, actress Annette Bening is starring in Rodrigo Garcia’s Mother and Child, in which she plays a woman haunted by the daughter she gave up for adoption at the age of 14.

Working as a physical therapist in a rehabilitation clinic and looking after her elderly mother with whom she barely speaks has impacted Karen’s (Bening) ability to have normal human relationships. She’s uncomfortable around just about everybody, and is demanding and unsociable at home and at work, as she keeps up a silent monologue to her absent daughter (Naomi Watts) through journal entries and letters never to be sent.

During an interview at the film’s press day, Annette Bening talked about approaching the paradox of a character who is both reaching out and shutting down, at the same time, finding interesting roles in Hollywood and the importance of social and political activities in her life.

Mother and Child movie poster Showest 2010 slice.jpgWhile walking through Showest tonight, I noticed the first poster for Rodrigo Garcia’s Mother and Child.  The movie premiered at this year’s Sundance Film festival to good reviews and Sony Pictures Classics is releases the film May 7 in New York and Los Angeles.  The movie stars Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, Kerry Washington, Jimmy Smits, and Samuel L. Jackson and it tells the story of three women – a physical therapist, the daughter she gave up at birth three decades ago, and an African American woman seeking to adopt a child of her own – and how they intersect in surprising ways.  Hit the jump to check out the poster.

Get Low movie image Bill Murray - slice.jpg

Over the last week I’ve posted tons of new images from all the movies premiering at this year’s Toronto Film Festival. While I thought I was done, this morning I was able to snag a few new images from “Get Low” and “Mother and Child”. Both films have great casts, and Bill Murray is in “Get Low”, which means you should care about it. What can I say, huge fan. Anyway, after the jump check out the images along with synopsis’ for both films.
