More about Motherhood
Raising kids is never easy. Academy Award-nominated actress Uma Thurman (Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction) portrays an urban, stay-at-home mom of two, who discovers this first hand in the hysterical new comedy, Motherhood. During the course of one chaotic day, Thurman’s Eliza comes to realize – in between birthday party fiascos, playground politics and life’s daily messes – what it really means to be a mom. Directed by Katherine Dieckmann (Diggers, A Good Baby) this hilarious and heartfelt film also stars Anthony Edwards (E.R., Zodiac) and Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting, The Riches). Following its Sundance Film Festival premiere last January, and its 2009 theatrical release in over 20 major markets, Motherhood will be available everywhere on DVD and Blu-ray February 23 – and as a special value-added incentive, Motherhood comes with $450 of coupons and money-saving offers for “essentials” that every mom needs.
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 (Driver) understands this – and Eliza – all too well.
Shot entirely on location in New York’s West Village, Motherhood takes place in a single day that pushes to the tipping point Eliza’s fundamental fear that she has lost herself. Starting at dawn, her to-do list is daunting: prepare for and throw her daughter’s 6th birthday party, mind her toddler son, battle for a parking space during an epic alternate side parking showdown, navigate playground politics with overbearing moms, and mend a rift after posting her best friend’s confession on her blog. On top of it all, Eliza decides to enter a contest run by an upscale parenting magazine. All she has to do is write 500 words answering the deceptively simple question, “What Does Motherhood Mean to Me?” It’s in the process of putting these thoughts into words that Eliza rediscovers her own voice and realizes what is truly valuable in her life.
Bonus features on both the DVD and Blu-ray editions of Motherhood include interviews with Thurman, Edwards, Driver and director Katherine Dieckmann as well as a feature-length audio commentary from Dieckmann and producer Rachel Cohen. The film is presented with optional English SDH and Spanish language subtitles. Value-added incentives from Aden + Anais, Aveeno Baby, BabyBjörn, Diapers.com, Learning Care Group, Nutrisystem, Parenting magazine and Serena & Lily are included inside of every DVD and Blu-ray (All offers are valid through 12/31/10).
