Mother’s Day is almost here and though we all love our mothers (well, maybe not all of you out there), we have to admit – it’s not always been a smooth road with Mom.
Of course that could be our fault, or, as is often the case when the child is discussing their problems, Mom’s fault. You see it’s usually very complicated and frequently dramatic. Sometimes melodramatic. And that kind of dynamic--the battle between Mother and Daughter--makes for some powerful, poignant, hilarious, and horrifying cinema. We’ve talked about “Mean Mom” movies, but what about Dysfunctional Daughter/Mother Dramas? We’re talking about them now. Time to go buy something nice for your mother, like a scented, padded hanger.
