Mother and child

Mother and Child DVD plus fab £100 Goody Bag Giveaway

Motherhood takes many forms and for each Mother their journey can be incredibly different . . . Mother and Child follows the lives of three women and the power of an unbreakable bond between Mother and Child.


Annette Bening takes the role of Karen who at the age of 14 was forced to give up her newborn baby for adoption. Karen has never quite come to terms with saying goodbye to her baby and every day her baby is in her thoughts. As a grown woman she is a bitter and unhappy spinster who lives with her mother. Naomi Watts is Elizabeth, the grown up daughter that Karen has never met. Elizabeth is an ambitious lawyer who struggles with emotional relationships. Kerry Washington is Lucy, an infertile wife eager to adopt to fulfil her role as a Mother.

    My mother to me means comfort. She’s always there for me and makes me feel comforable even in odd situations.

    My mother means home to me, my mom is always where my home is. She raised me, took care of me and loved me.

    My mother means love to me. She’s kissed all the boo-boo’s. Hugged away the pains. Cleaned up the spills and has loved me through the best and worst times of my life. I may have let her down plenty of times, but she’s never stopped telling me she loves me.

    My mother, to me, means courage. She’s gone through a lot in her life. But, she’s kept a good spirit about it all and has never stopped trying to do what is right.

    The word Mother means to me – The person that is always there when you need someone and even when you don’t. A person who always puts their child before themselves. A role model, protector, comforter and also a best friend.
