Movie Info

Theresa McDermott has chased her "ideal" life as an urban-dwelling, punk(ish) singer-songwriter to the very end of its possible existence. She is broke, options have run out and she happens to have a few kids she is raising on her own since their dad split a year ago. Facing eviction and nowhere to go, Theresa packs up her children and what is left of her life and moves back to the small rural town, childhood home and parents she deliberately ran from a decade ago. Theresa needs a job, her parents need their space and a painful family history needs some closure. Old wounds, unattainable dreams, and some "other things" are exposed as a fractured family works to become whole and a woman with a few kids learns to become a mother.

A well-acted dramedy that's heartfelt, funny and refreshingly witty.

Audience Reviews for Theresa Is A Mother


Truly offbeat in its pacing and willingness to veer off on eccentric tangents, Theresa Is a Mother doesn't always succeed in its stylistic ambitions. But it does present a psychologically rich portrait of its central character, who elicits a bizarre fascination.
