Before Naomi Watts got into high gear awards circuit parading for The Impossible and Robin Wright received acclaim for House of Cards, the duo were at Sundance with an erotic drama not far removed from a seemingly trashy bodice ripper. Directed by Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel), Two Mothers follows Wright and Watts as — well, one can guess that part — who end up falling in love with each other’s son (Xavier Samuel, James Frecheville).
The first international trailer has landed today (which gives it the title of Perfect Mothers) for the film based on Doris Lessing‘s novel and a script by Christopher Hampton, who has previously worked on A Dangerous Method, Cheri and Atonement. It’s certainly silly, but perhaps Fontaine’s touch will provide a more elegant approach. That said, the response didn’t seem too positive out of Sundance, but one can check it out below (thanks to ONTD) for the film also starring Ben Mendelsohn.
Expect a 2013 release for Two Mothers.
