The Mother

This touching and occasionally witty tale about a taboo relationship comes to us from London (where it was directed by Notting Hill's Roger Mitchell). May (Anne Reid from "Coronation Street") is a suddenly widowed grandmother who moves in with her thirtysomething daughter. There, she meets her daughter's hard-drinking cad of a boyfriend, and the two begin an unlikely affair. On the one hand, it's an honest and sensitive look at an older woman's sexual reawakening. On the other hand, it's a tough mother-and-daughter drama. Sharp performances all around. 112 minutes
