I’m the type that doesn’t like to hear anything about a film before seeing it in a theater. But, for now, I’ll tell you, this rich drama explores the many ways women have tried to conceive before and outside of in vitro fertilization. Especially when having a baby is essential to the extended family legacy. Mother of George explores the complexity and pressures of one couple’s efforts and challenges in Crown Heights’ Yoruba community. Trust us, “Mother of George,” was an official selection at Sundance Film Festival for a reason – and it is hands-down, one of our favorite dramas of 2013.

We love to see black actresses in films that actually do their talents justice. Yaya Alafia and Danai Gurira shine in Mother of George. I’m so proud to share the opportunity to see it with the Live Unchained community.
