Mother's Milk Review

Image for Mother's Milk

A heavy drinker with a troubled marriage, Patrick (Jack Davenport) reacts with fury to news that his mother Eleanor (Margaret Tyzack) is leaving her Provençe pile to a new age hipster.


Tracing Patrick's (Davenport) drunken response to his mother’s treachery in bequeathing her Provençal home to New Age charlatan Seamus (Adrian Dunbar), this adaptation of Edward St. Aubyn’s Booker-nominated novel is darkly witty and gamely played.

A challenging and well-acted portrayal of family dysfunction that will appeal to fans of Joanna Hogg's exceptional Archipelago.
