Watch the Video Trailer For Mother and Child Starring Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, and Kerry Washington

Movie Preview: Watts and Bening in Mother and Child

How do you make two brilliant actresses even more compelling on screen? Make them mother and daughter. At least, that's the case for Naomi Watts and Annette Bening in the bittersweet drama Mother and Child. Although the film comes with a caveat: Watts plays Elizabeth, the daughter Bening's character gave up for adoption and has never met. Motherhood is the central theme of the movie—Kerry Washington also stars as a woman who is trying to adopt, while Elizabeth finds herself pregnant. Intriguingly, Samuel L. Jackson plays against type here as Elizabeth's love interest, in what seems like a sweet and subdued role. The trailer is moving and slightly somber, but it looks to be full of great performances. Plus, it's a pretty large ensemble—Jimmy Smits, David Morse and Carla Gallo also appear. The film hits theatres today, so check out the trailer and let me know what you think.
