Naomi Watts and Robin Wright stars in a new and slightly controversial drama this July entitled: Adore. This new film (also known as Two Mothers) is about a pair of childhood friends and their journey into uncharted waters in their lives. They go through complex emotions and powerful desires as they fall for each other’s sons. The plot of Adore is quite intriguing, it premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and is directed by Anne Fontaine. Check out the latest buzz on this new movie: Adore.
“The Intriguing Movie: Adore
Relationships are complicated. Every person knows this; it is a universal truth. Love can be both the best experience and the worst experience, but it’s incredibly difficult to live your life on this earth unscathed by the scars of loving another person. Of course, a relationship is made a bit more complicated when you fall in love with your best friend’s son, and director Anne Fontainetakes this complication one step further by chronicling the extended love affair of two best friends who fall in love with each other’s sons. Hit the jump for my full review of Two Mothers.
Lil and Roz (Naomi Watts and Robin Wright, respectively) have been best friends ever since they were young. Their bond is almost one of companionship more than friendship, and Roz’s husband (Ben Mendelsohn) at one point even remarks that he feels as if he has his wife on loan whenever they spend time together. The two are simply inseparable. Roz’s husband dies suddenly when her son is just a child, and Lil is there to comfort her after the event. As we’re introduced to the close bond between these two women in the wake of the tragedy, we’re also made aware of the fact that their young sons are there to comfort each other as well. The film spends little time with the two as children, though, and we quickly jump forward to a time where the sons are now grown twenty something men, played by Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville, and like their mothers they too share a close friendship.
Fontaine seems adamant in making sure that we know her cast is gorgeous, and most of the shots of Samuel and Frecheville feature the two shirtless on a beach, shirtless in the water, or shirtless in their houses. In fact, in an early dialogue exchange between Lil and Roz, the two marvel at just how good-looking their sons are, likening them to “young gods.” As the story progresses, we see that the four pretty much spend all of their time together (which in and of itself is pretty strange), and we catch quick glances between Roz and Samuel that hint at more than an innocent connection.
The crux of the film’s premise is kicked into gear when Samuel’s character, the son of Lil, sleeps over at Frecheville’s place and, following more of those curious looks between the two, kisses Roz out of the blue while wandering the house late at night. As has been established in the earlier scenes, Roz’s feelings for Samuel’s character are likely deeper than they ought to be, and she doesn’t outright stop this unexpected kiss, moving things passionately into the bedroom.”
