Wardrop’s 2009 feature film debut His & Hers found the Irish documentarian getting women of all ages to open up about their relationships with men.
Mom and Me, sees the film-maker venture out to Oklahoma to follow radio show personality Joe Cristiano, who, with Mother’s Day nearing, asks men to call in and discuss their mothers on air. Wardrop drops in on the lives of the men who phone, each of whom have wildly different relationships with the women that brought them into the world.
From an imprisoned drug addict desperate to connect with his mother, to a man who’s settling in with the sad realisation that his mother is losing her memory to Alzheimer’s: the relationships Wardrop depicts are all touching and involving.
