A new trailer has surfaced online for director Anne Fontaine’s drama Adore. The film centers around two childhood friends and neighbors (Naomi Watts and Robin Wright) who unexpectedly fall in love with each other’s teenage sons, and must deal with the consequences of their decisions as their respective relationships progress.
Originally titled Two Mothers and based on Doris Lessing’s novella The Grandmothers and adapted by Oscar-winning screenwriter Christopher Hampton.
I’m sure the film actually provides some interesting insights into motherhood, friendship, relationships and love, but I can’t get SNL’s Motherlover out of my head.
The supporting cast includes Xavier Samuel, James Frecheville, and Ben Mendelsohn.
Naomi Watts and Robin Wright deliver riveting performances in ADORE, a sensual and provocative drama about two lifelong friends who find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention. An unpredictable tale of misguided love and a heartfelt celebration of the enduring nature of female friendship, ADORE is the English-speaking directorial debut of Anne Fontaine. Set in an Australian seaside town, ADORE establishes an aura of fable as it follows two women’s plunge into uncharted waters. Watts and Wright fearlessly engage with the physical and psychological components of the story, capturing the complex emotions and powerful desires driving their characters. Strong performances from Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville complement Watts and Wright. ADORE radiates with intoxicating sensuality while exploring the intricacies of love, family, morality and passion.
