Movie Info

An unassuming statistics professor abducts a young woman he sees jogging in the park with a baby, imprisoning her in his basement in order to steal her mother's milk. The kidnapping goes awry, however, when the dysfunctional professor discovers that the woman is in fact the child's aunt. Over the course of the next few weeks, the pair enters into a precarious relationship that threatens to end in tragedy.

Critic Reviews for Mother's Milk

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

  • The humour is brittle, British and throwaway, but with a tang of real poison.

    Nov 8, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a tricky business, adapting literary fiction for the screen, but this is rather like having someone read the book at you while you're watching, which is tiresome, and doesn't add up to anything credible cinematically.

  • Aubyn's prose hasn't quite been translated with the same wit and menace for the screen.

  • You wouldn't want to hang out with these people, but you might enjoy listening to them squabble from the other side of a fence.

    Dec 7, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Director Gerry Fox has made countless, award-winning arts documentaries but has bitten off more than he can handle with his feature debut.

    Nov 12, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • There are a few achingly bad moments that unnecessarily point up the crudity of vacuous British expatriates, but this is generally a film that knows its foreign milieu without being sneeringly knowing.
