Rebecca Rose, whose husband has been acting
aloof, is tempted by the attentions of a former celebrity flame. Marco
Goldstein, saddled with two kids when his husband, Todd, is away on business,
turns to anonymous sex for comfort. Danny Gottlieb, a screenwriter on the cusp
of a big break, leaves his wife and children to pitch a film (and meet young
women) in Los Angeles. Fallen sanctimommy Karen Bryan Shapiro, devastated by
her husband’s infidelity and abandonment, attempts a fresh start with a hot
single dad. And former A-list actress Melora Leigh plots a star turn on
Broadway to revive her Hollywood career. As their stories intersect in
surprising ways and their deceptions spiral out of control, they begin to
question their beliefs about family, happiness, and themselves.
Equal parts moving and richly entertaining, Motherland
is a fresh take on modern marriage that confirms Amy Sohn as one of our
most insightful commentators on relationships and parenting in America today.
