The advanced screening of Mother's Day was truly an event to behold. An entire cinema full of men and women, aged from young to old turned out for what was sure to be an enjoyable movie experience. And this crowd was not afraid to hold back their laughter; constantly erupting into cheers and bursting with laughter, everyone certainly appreciated the evening that they had shared.
A Mother's Day tale for people young and old; this is an ideal film for fans of Love Actually, as it follows a similar story format and has similar character relationships. In my opinion, this would be a perfect gift to share with any mother.
The Mother's Day holiday is typically a joyous time where we celebrate mums from all walks of life; but for some this holiday is not one that bodes happy memories. Featuring an all star cast, including Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson and Jason Sudeikis, the film Mother's Day encompasses very different versions of mothers and teaches us that although everyone is different, they are all loved. It uses both romantic and familial love to create a truly unique love story for everyone to enjoy.
This film is very reminiscent of typical romantic comedies and so it would suit a viewer with similar tastes. I do believe that director Gary Marshall has succeeded in making a romantic comedy that strays from typical romantic love and replaces it with deep familial love and the structures of different families; exploring how it affects people differently and how not every mother is the same.
Mother's Day will be opening in cinemas on April 28th 2016. Refer to your local cinema website for details.
