As a blogger I was excited and inspired to watch blogging-women-themed movies.
I found Motherhood to be the more stressful of the two films, but maybe it hit too close to home. Or maybe not.
In Motherhood, Uma Thurman plays “Eliza,” a frazzled NYC mom whose days as a writer seem like a lifetime ago.
Motherhood takes place over one very full, mommy-frazzling day.
Two of the main tasks that Eliza has before her on this day are 1) planning and hosting a birthday party for her daughter and 2) writing a 500 word essay about what motherhood means to her.
Try as I might, I couldn’t manage to see Eliza in a sympathetic light. Motherhood did have it’s funny moments but Eliza’s emotional outbursts were largely stress-inducing.
In an interesting marketing experiment, the Motherhood DVD comes with lots of coupons for saving money on baby products. The coupons are also in CD-Rom form on the DVD.
