The Mother is a 2023 American action thriller film directed by Niki Caro with a screenplay by Misha Green, Andrea Berloff and Peter Craig from an original story by Green.
The film stars Jennifer Lopez, Joseph Fiennes, Lucy Paez, Omari Hardwick, Paul Raci and Gael García Bernal.
The Mother is not necessarily an Oscar film, but it has the gift of keeping you glued to the screen until the end, and that can only be a good thing.
You can watch The Mother on Netflix right now
If you think you’re done with Netflix, you can watch The Mother this weekend if you haven’t already.
The script is, to some extent, quite weak, but not necessarily the worst you’ve seen so far.
However, the film compensates in terms of staging, a banal car chase having the quality to make you not skip 10 seconds, even if, perhaps, you are not necessarily a fan of action films.
Beyond the action, The Mother is an emotional film that showcases the unique relationship between a mother and her child.
Jennifer Lopez plays the role of “the mother”, a character whose name we don’t even learn at the end of the film. She is, quite simply, the mother, but also a seemingly ruthless killer who enters a witness protection program.
And, because it was still about Jennifer Lopez, as never before, the actress manages to integrate perfectly into the character. You almost forget about all the controversies in the artist’s personal life, her music and, ultimately, her.
Lopez isn’t Lopez, she’s The Mother, and in a parallel universe, she may have even won an acting award for it.
As we said before, The Mother is available on Netflix and we guarantee that it is not a waste of time in any way.
