Mother's Day

As Mother's Day draws close, a group of seemingly unconnected people come to terms with the relationships they have with their mothers. 


  • Jennifer Aniston as Sandy
  • Julia Roberts as Miranda
  • Kate Hudson as Jesse
  • Jason Sudeikis as Bradley
  • Timothy Olyphant as Henry
  • Britt Robertson as Kristin
  • Jack Whitehall as Zack

There are a lot of well-known actors in is movie. Each and every character here had too many different layers and were performed effortlessly.   

The direction here is excellent. Being a comedy film, the simplicity in the direction of the film plays major role in the entire movie.

The dialogues are well written. They strike right to the heart of the audiences. I could see people all teared up in emotion at some particular lines as one can relate to the characters which are very well presented here.

The movie being of two hours could have been shorter.

As the title suggests the movie is all about mothers. Wide spectrum of issues faced by parents as well as their children are showcased here. From acceptance of ones child as a lesbian to the entrance of a new women in her ex-husband’s life is well narrated by showcasing different stories traversing parallel in the same time zone while having some minor intersections in their life.  The part that touched my soul was the story of Jason Sudeikis, a widower of an army officer who is the father of two daughters and is trying to take their mother’s position.

The best movie you can go watch with or family on this mother’s day!

My rating is 4/5.
