Mother movies coming soon

We Need to Talk About Kevin has been made into a film, with a dark haired Tilda Swinton as Eva. The film has been well received at Cannes. Can’t wait to see it.

The film adaptation of I Don’t Know How She Does It, by Alison Pearson, is being made in the US with Sarah Jessica Parker playing Kate Reddy. Should be released this year.

Hope they both do better than Motherhood, a film with Uma Thurman playing a blogging mum.

Should mean that public conversations about mothering are coming soon!

I love both of those books - I hope the movies don't wreck them. Always a bit nervous when my favourite books become movies.

Interview with Tilda Swinton re mothering and Kevin. I'm looking for the Australian release date.

Sept 2011 in the UK - so maybe six weeks after for Australia.
And I Don't Know How She Does It - Nov 3. Excellent.
