About The Film Stepmom
The film tells the story of a recently divorced father played by Ed Harris (“Apollo 13”, “The Right Thing”) and his two emotionally charged children who are forced to part with their father’s smooth “Manhattan” attic (starring Susan Sarando). , “Dead Man Walking”) a beautiful, suburban house.
The plot revolves around the entrance of a live-in girlfriend that threatens to supplant the mother. Played by the radiant Julia Roberts (“My Best Friend’s Wedding”), Dad’s new lover, a successful fashion photographer, battles to win the affection of her boyfriend’s children while juggling her trendy career.
The jilted Sarandon takes every opportunity to undermine her husband’s new flame. “I’ll hate her if you want me to Mom,” declares her eight-year-old son.
Although we sympathize with the children’s unhappiness, it is Roberts’ character the Stepmom to whom our heart is meant to go out. Afterall, she’s no homewrecker, she’s really trying, and she knows all the words to the Motown classics.
One of the women is suffering from cancer, and the rest of the film feels like a warmed-up version of last year’s incomparable “One True Thing.” You see, director Columbus says that a spare mom can be really helpful.
The film has its share of shameful memories of schoolyard profanity and sexuality.
