Yes, it’s getting in hot in here, and it’s not just the summer sun bearing down on you. What happens when two hot mamas get uncomfortable under the collar for the each other’s hunky sons? No, this isn’t that section of the bookstore you shamefully go into, it’s “Adore” (previously known as “Two Mothers“) the steamy new drama that basically asks what happens if you screwed your best friend’s Mom?
From filmmaker Anne Fontaine (“Coco Before Chanel“) and writer Christopher Hampton (“Dangerous Liasons,” “Atonement,” “A Dangerous Method“), the film follows two lovely Moms — Naomi Watts and Robin Wright — as they slip into an uneasy, sexually charged, boundary crossing relationship with each other’s grown boys. Needless to say, there are lots of shirts coming off, explosive passion and equally explosive drama. It seems like a movie that needs to toe a very fine line to prevent it from falling into Lifetime territory, but the talent all around is top notch, so we’ll stay on this side of optimistic. With our pants on.
“Adore” opens on September 6th.
