Mama 2013 - REVIEW
Jessica Chastain) and Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) who are faced with the challenge of raising his young nieces, Victoria and Lilly, after they are abandoned, by their Father, in the forest for 5 years. Once they are finally found, they are "wild", especially Lilly. However, who is it that has been raising them for 5 years? It ain't the TV!
What I enjoyed about the film the most, was the beginning of the film, when we are introduced to young Victoria and Lilly. Their innocence, which is portrayed so very well by the young girl who plays Victoria (Morgan McGarry), comes across insanely natural. Having a daughter myself, I automatically thought about her and how she would feel, if she was in that situation.
Neil Cross, Andrés Muschietti, Barbara Muschietti) and the director (Andrés Muschietti), is really what kept this from being such a better film. But, hey, who am I to say. Anyway, If you are considering seeing this or the new Texas Chainsaw... I would say... go see "Mama".
