Check out the trailer released for upcoming Netflix film Otherhood, starring Angela Bassett, Patricia Arquette and Felicity Huffman.
The film follows three mothers and long-time friends whose adult sons are living in New York City. Feeling forgotten, the mothers decide to drive to NYC and surprise their sons in an effort to reconnect. They soon realise that it’s perhaps not their sons that need to change, but themselves.
This one’s directed and co-written by Cindy Chupack, making her feature directorial debut after a lengthy career writing television (Sex in the City, Everybody Loves Raymond). It looks like an amiable film that should please its demographic. Interestingly, Michelle Pfeiffer, Diane Keaton and Viola Davis were attached to star in this in an earlier iteration of the project.
Otherhood will be hitting Netflix on August 2nd.
Official synopsis for Otherhood:
For empty nesters, what’s the difference between letting your children grow up and letting them grow distant? This year, on Mother’s Day, feeling marginalized and forgotten, long time friends Carol (Angela Bassett), Gillian (Patricia Arquette) and Helen (Felicity Huffman) decide to drive to New York to reconnect with their adult sons, and in the process, they realize their sons are not the only ones whose lives need to change. A journey to relate becomes a journey of rediscovery that forces these women to redefine their relationships with their children, friends, spouses and most importantly, themselves. Written and directed by Cindy Chupack (Sex and the City), OTHERHOOD is a soulful, hilarious and honest exploration of life after motherhood.
