I should have watched it with mom. This story captures and magnifies the loving bond that exists between mother and child. Even though it begins in a dark place for Ma and Jack, Jack is unaware how bleak things are and he is perfectly content in the world Ma has created for him. He needs to be disabused of his belief that all is right in his world. But in so doing, Ma has her own trouble coping with her return home. This was a great story that I found parallels threads of my own experiences with my mom, but without the creepy abduction rape-baby part. Watch it with your mom.
