How’s that for a salacious headline? The two gorgeous blond actresses star in a controversial new film, Two Mothers. It made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The Anne Fontaine-directed flick recently released its first international trailer and boy, is it sensual.
Two Mothers is a gripping tale of love, lust and the power of friendship that charts the unconventional and passionate affairs of two lifelong friends Lil (Naomi Watts) and Roz (Robin Wright) who fall in love with each other’s sons played by James Frecheville (Animal Kingdom) and Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse). 29-year-old Samuel looks especially smoking in the film. WOOF. The film is based on British writer Doris Lessing’s Nobel Prize-winning The Grandmothers: Four Short Novels.
“These are two great female characters full of complexities who are dealing with that midlife point. It’s definitely an unconventional love story,” explains Naomi Watts to E! News. “But it’s not just about sex and their ages,” she continued. “It’s about this kind of unit that has worked so well together and it’s the end of their school life. They’re about to head off to university. The nest is emptying.”
It may not just be about sex, but there’s plenty of cougar action. This is certainly a recipe for disaster. I can’t wait to see how this emotional tug-of-war between love and lust unfolds. It definitely won’t be pretty. I’m sure Freud’s psychoanalytic theory Oedipus complex somewhat applies here. Check out the international trailer below. Be forewarned there’s a brief booty moment.
Does the trailer intrigue you? Would you watch this film? I’m definitely checking this out since I’m a huge Naomi Watts fan. I can’t believe Robin Wright is old enough to play this role. To me, she’ll always be Jenny from Forrest Gump. Sound off below.
