Written by Hanif Kureishi, The Mother is a taboo-breaking and emotionally charged romantic drama. May (Anne Reid) and Toots (Peter Vaughan), a couple in their sixties, are visiting their grown-up children in London when Toots suffers a fatal heart attack. May’s son Bobby drives his mother back home to the north, but May decides she can’t stay alone and returns to London to live with Bobby, much to the annoyance of daughter-in-law Helen. May fears that she has become another invisible old woman whose life is more or less over. Until, that is, she falls for Darren (Daniel Craig), a man half her age, who is renovating her son’s house and sleeping with her daughter.
