On a warm spring day in 1924, house maid and foundling Jane Fairchild (Odessa Young) finds herself alone on Mother’s Day. Her employers, Mr and Mrs Niven (Colin Firth and Olivia Colman), are out and she has the rare chance to spend an afternoon of abandon with her secret lover, Paul (Josh O’Connor), the boy from the manor house nearby who is Jane’s long-term romantic love despite the fact that he’s engaged to be married to another woman, a childhood friend and daughter of his parents’ friends. But events that neither can foresee will change the course of Jane’s life forever… Mothering Sunday is directed by the acclaimed French filmmaker / writer Eva Husson, director of the movies Those for Whom It’s Always Complicated, Bang Gang, and Girls of the Sun previously. The screenplay is written by Alice Birch, adapted from the novel by Graham Swift. This initially premiered at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. It also opens in the UK beginning in November as well. Sony Pictures Classics releases Husson’s Mothering Sunday in select US theaters starting on November 19th, 2021 this fall.
