Adore [2013] ★½

two_mothers_ver2Embarrassingly bad drama set in Western Australia, where two best friends (Naomi Watts and Robin Wright) hook up with each other’s sons (say what?). Wright’s boy, Ian (Xavier Samuel), gets Watts in the sack first. Then Watts, angry as hell, thinks it’s only right to have sex with Wright’s son. Sounds sexy? Not really. With that cast, we rightfully expect fireworks. What we get instead is a stinky turd that is depressing and pointless beyond endurance. I’ll say no more, except that spending time with these “perfect mothers” is no fun at all.

  1. The cast was good and in general the film was easy to watch, but the plot was kinda lacking. It is a weird movie, sure, but at least you expect the anxiety and the anger on the face at the begining. It came all so natural, so unrealistic natural. Personally, the mothers, especially Naomi Watts, made the movie look bad with their fake acting. I don’t blame them so much, the script was not well-written. It was difficult to get into full character….. but again that’s what really matters, right?
