To be an extraordinary mother, you have to do something extraordinary.

Written by Richard Curtis and directed by Phillip Noyce, Mary And Martha stars Hilary Swank as Mary and Brenda Blethyn as Martha, an American and an Englishwoman who have little in common apart from a tragedy that unexpectedly brings them together.

Empowered by their friendship they form a partnership that takes them from their meeting in a remote part of Mozambique all the way to Washington – two ordinary mothers doing something extraordinary.

Mary is played by Hilary Swank, Martha by Brenda Blethyn, George by Lux Haney-Jardine and Ben by Sam Claflin.
