What would a mother do to find out who murdered her child? In the new thriller The Good Mother, Hilary Swank will stop at nothing to learn the truth about the death of her estranged son.
Formerly-titled Mother’s Milk, the film stars features one Hell of a cast. Not only is Oscar-winner Swank leading the way, but she’s joined by Olivia Cooke, Hopper Penn, Norm Lewis, Jack Reynor, and Dilone.
That’s an all-star group assembled by director/co-writer Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, who recently directed the Margot Robbie period thriller Dreamland, as well as the Amandla Stenberg drama As You Are. Solid credentials there.
Here’s the synopsis: Starring two-time Academy Award®-winner Hilary Swank, Olivia Cooke and Jack Reynor, The Good Mother follows journalist Marissa Bennings (Swank) who, after the murder of her estranged son, forms an unlikely alliance with his pregnant girlfriend Paige (Cooke) to track down the killers. Together they confront a world of corruption and drugs in the seedy underbelly of a small city in upstate New York. As they get closer to the truth, they unearth an even darker secret.
The Good Mother opens in theaters on September 1st.
