Housebound and left to look after her ageing mother, Karen (Bening) daydreams ruefully of the daughter she gave up for adoption 35 years previously. Her daughter (Watts) is now a tough-edged lawyer nursing some long-buried wounds of her own. Lucy (Washington), meanwhile, yearns for a child of her own.
Solid ensemble drama with too many threads to do justice too. Bening doesn't get the opportunity to hit The Kids Are Alright's highs.
