Worth while watching till the end, don't let the first 20 minutes fool you

It sure took a while to ease into the movie. For you thinking what's going on and how does all of this connect..eventually you get with the flow of the movie and get the hang of it. It involves a couple families with mother and daughter problems and with the main woman ,Rigsby, you see how she makes her hard decision on whether or not to have a child on her own. Quite inspiring there. I actually quite enjoyed watching it with my mom. Very sweet and heartfelt, don't judge so harsh and quickly. Can be, for some, a 'tearjerker' so good idea to keep some tissues handy. Only 90 minutes long, don't judge at first site! Many people didn't finish watching this movie and so they rated it terribly.

The ups and downs of mother/daughter relationships

Two directors – Paul Duddrudge who is responsible for the concept of the film (written for the screen by Paige Cameron) and Nigel Levy – are part of the problem of this slight film: if two men are directing a story about several dysfunctional mother/daughter relationships they could easily be the reason the film is so confusingly disjointed.

To write a review about the stories in this film would inevitably result in spoilers, if enough facts were strung together to make sense of this mélange. About all that is safe to state is that 'the story is focused on a rock photographer Rigby Gray (Selma Blair) who is riding a career high when an unlikely and unexpected pregnancy forces her to turn her lens inward and see her relationship with her estranged mother with fresh eyes. Through a series of photographs documenting motherhood in all its varieties, she considers what it means to be maternal.

Sounds interesting but what gets in the way is the lack of connection between the girls and their mothers – most were either abandoned at birth (or threatening to repeat that gesture with a D&C) or were lied to by their mother about their birth mother, or they're searching for a face to face with a child they haven't seen for years. And to say more would ruin what little suspense there is in what is termed a comedy (!).

At times frustrating, at times touching, the actors include (no spoilers here) Selma Blair, Susan Sarandon, Eva Amurri Martino, Christina Ricci, Sharon Stone, Courteney Cox, Mira Sorvino, Paul Wesley, Christopher Backus, Paul Adelstein, the very promising Luke Mitchell, Alexandra Daniels, Dave Baez, and many, many more.

Some good thoughts, here, but too dissociative to pull off a meaningful film.

Very touching

At first one wonders what the hell is happening. Indeed, the first 20 mn is fragile and a little chaotic, trying to find it's pace and purpose. When suddenly, a true poignant dramatic scene embodied by C. Ricci's beautiful performance echoes with all the rest of a refined and all-star cast, isolated in different segments. The movie then manages to elegantly transmit a highly universal presentation of what it is to Mother in a strong, impacting and profound manner. In the end, the spectator has experienced a humble, innovative and grounded cinematic expression about a universal theme: motherhood from beginning to end, a thing called LIFE!

I can't help to wonder if bad reviewers have indeed watch the movie until the end...
