Celebrate ‘Mother’s Day Eve’ and win 1 of 5 Motherhood DVDs


Preview by Jack Foley

TO PROMOTE the release of Motherhood, starring Uma Thurman and Minnie Driver, Asda, Mums.Net and Metrodome Distribution will launch a special new date in the calendar – ‘Mother’s Day Eve’ – which will fall on the Saturday night (March 13) before Mothering Sunday (March 14) 2010.

New comedy Motherhood follows Uma Thurman as mother and wife racing against the clock to prepare for her daughter’s sixth birthday party in the face of chaos.

From writer/director Katherine Dieckmann, the acclaimed filmmaker of Diggers and A Good Baby, comes Motherhood, starring Uma Thurman, Anthony Edwards and Minnie Driver.

Shot entirely on location in New York’s West Village, this bittersweet comedy distils the dilemmas of the maternal state (marriage, work, self, and not necessarily in that order) into the trials and tribulations of one pivotal day.

Motherhood forms a genre of one – no other movie has dedicated itself in quite this way to probing exactly what it takes to be a mother, with both wry humour and an acute sense of authenticity.

Eliza Welch (Thurman) is a former fiction writer-turned-mom-blogger with her own site, “The Bjorn Identity.” Putting her deeper creative ambitions on hold to raise her two children, Eliza lives and works in two rent-stabilized apartments in a walk-up tenement building smack in the middle of an otherwise upscale Greenwich Village. Eliza’s good-natured but absent-minded husband (Edwards) seems tuned out to his wife’s conflicts, not to mention basic domestic reality, while her best friend Sheila (Minnie Driver) understands this – and Eliza — all too well.

Motherhood is a hymn to the joys and sorrows of raising children, and the necessity of not losing yourself in the process. The DVD is available from March 8, 2010.
