On December 14th, 2010, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is releasing Mother and Child on DVD!  The film stars Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, and Kerry Washington and is rated R.  The DVD will be available for purchase in stores and online, retailing for $28.95.

DVD SYNOPSIS:

From writer-director Rodrigo Garcia (TV’s “Big Love,” “Nine Lives”) and executive producer Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (“Babel”) comes the moving story of three women and the power of the unbreakable bond between mother and child.  Three women’s lives share a common core: they have all been profoundly affected by adoption.  Karen (Annette Bening) placed a baby for adoption at age 14 and has been haunted ever since by the daughter she never knew.  Elizabeth (Naomi Watts) grew up as an adopted child; she’s a bright and ambitious lawyer, but a flinty loner in her personal life.  Lucy (Kerry Washington) and her husband are just embarking on the adoption odyssey, hoping for the opportunity to become parents.

    I think adoption is great. My husband is adopted, just by his grandparents, but adopted just the same, kinda. Lol. We have some friends who are not going to be able to have children of their own and are getting ready to start the adoption process and I think it’s wonderful that it exists. Children who have no one get matched up with people who desperately want a child. In a perfect world all parents would want their children but we definitely don’t live in a perfect world so having adoption is the next best thing.

  55. Geoff K says:

    A benefit of adoption is that it provides a loving home and family to a child who might not have otherwise had them, and it gives parents who cannot conceive the ability to have children of their own, so in many ways the mutual bond that forms is just as strong as the one that forms between parents and their biological children.

    Adoption has so many benefits. The biggest is you are completing your family and giving a new start to a child who needs one.

    A child can have more opportunities in a stable home: education, extra curricular activities, religion, etc.
