Mama never once said there'd be days like this, holy buckets! Check out Naomi Watts and Robin Wright as the two acclaimed actresses get a bit too close for comfort in this international trailer for the Australia-set drama "Two Mothers," (known internationally as "Perfect Mothers"). Watts and Wright play two lifelong friends who jeopardize their idyllic beach-soaked lives when they decide to romantically enter a taboo relationship with each other's sons (Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville). This melodramatic adaptation of British author Doris Lessing's short story comes from French-based director Anne Fontaine (whose works include the historical drama 'Coco Before Chanel' and the steamy thriller 'Nathalie'). It was also adapted by Atonement and Dangerous Liaisons scribe Christopher Hampton. The movie recently premiered last month at Sundance, and for now, will only open in European markets this spring and summer.
A gripping tale of love, lust, and the power of friendship, Two Mothers charts the unconventional and passionate affairs embarked upon by two lifelong friends, Lil and Roz, who fall in love with each other’s sons. Afraid of facing the ire and judgment of their insular seaside community, they continue the relationships in secret over the years. Once the affairs are discovered, the revelation threatens to tear apart their lives and those of the young men, who must eventually choose between following a well-worn path or their true desires.
