Mother and Child

Rodrigo García (son of Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez) directs one of those ensemble, anthology-stye dramas in which all the characters are linked to one another in esoteric ways. Annette Bening is a prickly 50-year-old regretting a 35-year-old decision to give her daughter up for adoption. Kerry Washington is an infertile woman who wants to adopt a baby. Naomi Watts is an icy lawyer having an affair with her boss Samuel L. Jackson and avoiding the idea of motherhood altogether. There are other people involved as well--all connected in one way or another to the theme of mothers and daughters. The acting is top-notch, the writing quite emotional, but the story takes some untangling. Not as much as Babel, mind you, but there are a lot of plot threads going at once. 125 minutes R.
