Event Information

Open to



Hampstead Everyman Cinema, 5 Holly Bush Vale, NW3 6TX


May is an ordinary grandmother from the suburbs. When her husband dies on a family visit to London, she recedes into the background of her busy, metropolitan children's lives. Stuck in an unfamiliar city far from home, May fears that she has become another invisible old lady 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.

Directed by Roger Michell and written by Hanif Kureishi The Mother is a delicate and profound study of ageing and desire; a shocking and tender definition of family life in the 21st century.
