The Mother

The Mother ... click for larger image. We saw The Mother (on DVD from Netflix) tonight.  I can't figure out whether I liked it or not.  It was about a woman in her 60's who is suddenly widowed.  She didn't like her life before and wants to finally begin to find and enjoy herself.  The trouble is she chooses the worst possible way to break out... having a fling with her neurotic daughter's boyfriend.  It sounds funny, but it wasn't.

The NY Times liked it, but I'm ambivalent.

I guess I'd give this one a B.
