“Mothering Sunday”: An interwar period drama of romance and class

“Mothering Sunday”: An interwar period drama of romance and class

Next up in the Reel Monday film series on Monday, November 7 is “Mothering Sunday,” starring Olivia Colman, Odessa Young, Josh O’Connor, and Colin Firth.

Mothering Sunday … shimmers with confident filmmaking, fine performances and a belief in the melancholic resonance of a lovers’ sanctuary as something difficult to let go of. Because why would anyone want to?”

Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
