Netflix has released the trailer for “Otherhood”, which arrives on August 2nd. The film is based on “Whatever Makes You Happy” by William Sutcliffe, and follows three suburban mothers who show up to the New York City homes of their sons unannounced after failing to hear from them on Mother’s Day. Patricia Arquette, Angela Bassett, Felicity Huffman, Jake Hoffman, Sinqua Walls, and Jake Lacy star in the film.
For empty nesters, what’s the difference between letting your children grow up and letting them grow distant? This year, on Mother’s Day, feeling marginalized and forgotten, long time friends Carol (Angela Bassett), Gillian (Patricia Arquette) and Helen (Felicity Huffman) decide to drive to New York to reconnect with their adult sons, and in the process, they realize their sons are not the only ones whose lives need to change. A journey to relate becomes a journey of rediscovery that forces these women to redefine their relationships with their children, friends, spouses and most importantly, themselves. Written and directed by Cindy Chupack (Sex and the City), OTHERHOOD is a soulful, hilarious and honest exploration of life after motherhood.
