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.
