About the Movie

Roz and Lil are the best of friends, and have been since childhood growing up as neighbours in an idyllic beach town. As adults, their teenaged sons have developed a friendship as strong as that which binds their mothers. One perfect summer the boys, along with their mothers, are confronted by the simmering emotions that have been mounting between them. Deeply emotional, ADORE is a story of family, sensuality, compassion, morality and above all love.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: At Sundance, where the first showing was nearly laughed off the screen, Adore, based on a Doris Lessing novella, was known as Two Mothers. You should know it as something to avoid. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Sep 6, 2013

Rotten: It's even hard to simply enjoy the performances of the two stars, who give more that the film deserves. – Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, Sep 5, 2013

Rotten: Cast actresses with the skills that Naomi Watts and Robin Wright bring, give their obliviously icky story some arthouse visual lyricism, and you've got "Adore." – Tom Russo, Boston Globe, Sep 12, 2013

Rotten: I have no idea why such strapping young men would be so desperate for sex as to hook up with a couple of museum artifacts they've known all their lives, but this hokey soap views contrivance as a small price to pay for lush mommy fantasy. – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Sep 6, 2013

the acting was great and the story line although taboo.. was provocative and interesting. I would recommend it




I loved this movie and especially the ending! Wasn't that psychological as I thought it would.
