Mothering Sunday (2021)
Mothering Sunday is a beautiful, period romantic-drama starring Odessa Young, Josh O’Connor, Sope Dirisu, Olivia Colman, Colin Firth and Glenda Jackson.
On a warm spring day in 1924, housemaid foundling Jane Fairchild finds herself alone on Mother’s Day.
Her employers, Mr. and Mrs. Niven, are out and she has the rare chance to spend an afternoon of abandon with her secret lover, Paul, the boy from the manor house nearby who is Jane’s long-term love… despite the fact that he’s engaged to be married to another woman.
But events that neither can foresee will change the course of Jane’s life forever.
