'Two Mothers' trailer: Naomi Watts and Robin Wright are (insert cougar joke here) -- VIDEO

Robin Wright and Naomi Watts star in Two Mothers as friends who each start a sexual relationship with the other’s son.

The joke has been made before, and it will be made again, but it’s hard to watch the trailer without humming a verse from SNL‘s  “Motherlover.”

Watch the NSFW (two butts, also a lot of dramatic music over tender lovemaking) trailer below: READ FULL STORY

Sundance 2013: The deal report

Yes, the Sundance Film Festival is a temple to the glory of independent film and the purity of the art of cinema and blah blah blah. But it is also a vital marketplace for indie distributors to find the next blockbuster Little Miss Sunshine, or acclaimed Beasts of the Southern Wild, or wildly overpriced Happy, Texas. With the festival drawing to a close, Sundance 2013 has already proven to be one of the biggest deal-making festivals in recent memory, producing several major sales of movies that will either go on to become some of the buzziest films of the year, or, you know… not. We’ll update this space with additional deal reports throughout the week ahead. Here are the highlights so far: READ FULL STORY

Sundance 2013: Naomi Watts and Robin Wright are 'Two Mothers' with a sexy secret

“Qu’est-ce que c’est ‘cougar’?”

French director Anne Fontaine wasn’t familiar with the English term for mature women who prefer much younger men — nor was she aware of the Saturday Night Live sketch, “Motherlover” –  but with Two Mothers, she’s melting the snow at the Sundance Film Festival with a love story — “Not a sex story,” she says — about two Australian best friends who fall hard for each other’s teenage sons and form an unconventional quartet.

Close neighbors in an idyllic beach paradise, Lil (Naomi Watts) and Roz (Robin Wright) have been best pals since they were girls. They do everything together – making Roz’s husband (The Dark Knight’s Ben Mendelsohn) feel like an interloper in his own home  – and their sons are practically brothers. In the final summer before the boys head off to college, the unspeakable happens when Lil’s son Ian (Xavier Samuel) kisses Roz and she doesn’t stop him from going further. When her son, Tom (James Frecheville), catches them together, he feels compelled to act on his own hormones with Lil.

“I had never read anything like it,” says Watts. “And I loved how I went from a place of quickly judging them to almost instantly forgiving them, and more than that, willing it to happen and to continue. And the question comes up later, and the ‘Oh my God and we have to end this.’ But it’s too good, and that just felt very human to me.” READ FULL STORY

Sundance Film Festival's 13 must-see movies

Awkward.

If there’s one word that unites many of the movies making their debuts at the Sundance Film Festival this year, that’s probably the best: Hilariously, beautifully, tragically awkward.

Imagine you’re a teenage kid in the merciless grip of puberty and your “new dad” turns to you one day and — by way of trying to help you manage your expectations with girls — informed you that, sorry … you’re kind of ugly.

Awkward.
