The Mother in May
Momentum Pictures have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Mother for 24th May 2004 with a retail price of £17.99. Written by Hanif Kureishi and starring Anne Reid and Daniel Craig this critically acclaimed, taboo-breaking and emotionally charged romantic drama was directed by Roger Michell whose credits include the smash hit Notting Hill and Changing Lanes.
May (Anne Reid) and Toots (Peter Vaughan), a couple in their sixties, are visiting their grown-up children in London when Toots suffers a fatal heart attack. May’s son Bobby drives his mother back home to the north, but May decides she can’t stay alone and returns to London to live with Bobby, much to the annoyance of daughter-in-law Helen.
May fears that she has become another invisible old woman whose life is more or less over. Until, that is, she falls for Darren, a man half her age, who is renovating her son’s house and sleeping with her daughter.
Features on the DVD include Cast and crew interviews and the Theatrical trailer. Below we have a look at the pack shot and menu screens from this release...
