Double Bill: Mom & Me and A Wee Night In

Mom & Me

Oscar Wilde wrote, "All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his." With these words, Ken Wardrop opens the documentary in which he travels to America to investigate the role mothers play in the lives of Oklahoma's tough guys. From the drug addict trying to reconnect with his mother, to the man whose mother has Alzheimer's, Wardrop's compassionate observation reveals the universality that underlies this most particular relationship. (Dir: Ken Wardrop USA/Ireland/2016/1h16m/PG)

A Wee Night In

Chrissy was a sickly child, so no one expected her to live to a ripe old age. Nevertheless, this Scottish woman is now 95, frail but full of life. Today, Chrissy's 91-year-old boyfriend Bill is coming over for a nice evening that will pass by according to the slow rhythm of age. This is an intimate, heartwarming portrait of love in older age, full of recognisable, comedic moments. (Dir: Stuart Edwards UK/2014/11m)
