Director: Rodrigo García Starring: Annette Bening, Naomi Watts, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson Running time: 125 mins
Subject: Take one sad woman who decades ago gave her daughter up for a adoption, one career woman who was decades ago given up for adoption and one infertile woman who wants to adopt with her husband. Mix with big but undeveloped ideas and stretch beyond the length of a normal attention span.
Like: Listening to someone recounting a dream in laboured detail.
Core truth: Mothers and children: both important.
