Kids. They grow up so fast, don’t they? One day they’re fighting on the beach over something silly, the next they’re all hunky and you’re having sexual relations with your son’s best friend. Wha????? That’s the premise of Anne Fontaine’s “Adore”, formerly “Two Mothers”, though I guess that title probably jump-started its share of jokes involving “Mothers”, and I think you know what those jokes are, don’t you? You’re probably thinking about them now!
Take a look at the taboo new trailer for “Adore” below. It’s so, so wrong and yet so, so right? After all, it’s essentially just older women and younger men. Nothing wrong with that, right?
Naomi Watts and Robin Wright deliver riveting performances in ADORE, a sensual and provocative drama about two lifelong friends who find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention. An unpredictable tale of misguided love and a heartfelt celebration of the enduring nature of female friendship, ADORE is the English-speaking directorial debut of Anne Fontaine. Set in an Australian seaside town, ADORE establishes an aura of fable as it follows two women’s plunge into uncharted waters. Watts and Wright fearlessly engage with the physical and psychological components of the story, capturing the complex emotions and powerful desires driving their characters. Strong performances from Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville complement Watts and Wright. ADORE radiates with intoxicating sensuality while exploring the intricacies of love, family, morality and passion.
Starring Naomi Watts, Robin Wright, Xavier Samuel, James Frechevile, and Ben Mendelsohn.
