Both shine as solid pieces of family entertainment. The Danish work is getting distribution in North America courtesy of Uncork’d Entertainment and is available on VOD services like iTunes and Google Play.

Mother’s Day is not until May 14th, and for some families, they go all out to pay tribute to the matriarch of the family. Some moms may do what they do raising their children out of how they were raised and others only want the best. Mother and Me is a very moving documentary by writer-director Ken Wardrop and it will see its premiere May 5th in theaters and on VOD.

The Hollywood Reporter describes this product as “nicely judged mirror on life and feelings,” and FilmIreland says this film “captures the universal experience of motherly love perfectly.”

From Liberty Talk Radio, Joe Cristiano explores how the manliest men from the manliest state in the Union, Oklahoma, feel about their mothers. He gets them to call in to talk about their relationship with their moms on air, and in what this documentary shows, there’s bound to be surprises that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside.
