September 4, 2019
Keaton is never completely convincing as either the "before" or "after" Anna.

Overall, it's a competent meditation on a complex subject, but one wishes it had been injected with a little of the passion that the sculptor is supposed to have awakened in the good mother.

Performances are good, though Keaton's snorting laughs and distracted manner are a bit of an obstacle course.

For all its potential to challenge and disturb, The Good Mother is finally no more wrenching than a placid Maine landscape on a summer day.

The Good Mother is one of the most confused and conflicted serious movies in a long time -- a film that feels great passion about its subject matter but has no idea what it wants to say or how to say it.
