Watch: Naomi Watts and Robin Wright Swap Sons in Steamy 'Adore' Trailer

Having been the subject of plenty of talk and controversy at Sundance back in January, as well as undergoing a name change from its original title "Two Mothers," Exclusive Releasing has released a US trailer for "Adore." The film features Naomi Watts and Robin Wright as Lil and Roz, two women who have been friends since childhood. They are both now nearing middle age, with each having given birth to a son and living in an Australian beach town. A plethora of overlapping emotions seems to draw both of them to each other's sons, with Lil and Roz taking in each other's strapping young offspring as lovers.

As scandalous and outrageous as the material sounds, "Adore" comes with an impressively lofty pedigree. In addition to the two esteemed female leads, the film's script was written by Christopher Hampton, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "Dangerous Liaisons," who seems to have a keen insight and interest into the complex emotional ramifications of sex and desire. The film also marks the English-language debut of French director Anne Fontaine, whose previous films include "Coco Before Chanel" and "My Worst Nightmare."

"Adore" is set to hit theaters on video-on-demand on September 6.

    I wish everyone would stop with the puerile Lonely Island comparisons. This is a serious and intelligent film for adults, not juveniles.

    This film is also ACTUALLY based on a short story by Nobel laureate Doris Lessing called "The grandmothers".

    Hmm, where have I heard that concept before? Oh, wait. Lonely Island "MotherLover". I smell a class action law suit...

    Bill,

    Well something like that at least. The way society twists things to fit whatever individuals feel is okay just because they are willing to test the waters. I have seem many a test the waters concept backfire; the way t looks and seems to most people when society chooses to test what they see on movies it ceases to be just a movie and instead reality, and something or someone gets hurt. If AIDS really needed a new ways to increase this is it. Sad, truly sad to promote what people today really want to do, have sex with their neighbors teenagers.
