Giveaway #5 - Celebrate ‘Mother’s Day Eve’ and Win 1 of 3 Motherhood DVDs – out on DVD 8th March - CLOSED - winners kijolo, farmlanebooks and Dawnyloo

To promote the release of MOTHERHOOD, starring Uma Thurman and Minnie Driver – ASDA, MUMS.NET and METRODOME DISTRIBUTION will launch a special new date in the calendar – ‘MOTHER’S DAY EVE’ - which will fall on the Saturday night 13th March before Mothering Sunday, 14th March 2010. New comedy ‘MOTHERHOOD’ follows Uma Thurman as mother and wife racing against the clock to prepare for her daughter's sixth birthday party in the face of chaos.

From writer/director Katherine Dieckmann, the acclaimed film-maker of DIGGERS and A GOOD BABY, comes MOTHERHOOD, starring Uma Thurman, Anthony Edwards and Minnie Driver. Shot entirely on location in New York’s West Village, this bittersweet comedy distils the dilemmas of the maternal state (marriage, work, self, and not necessarily in that order) into the trials and tribulations of one pivotal day. MOTHERHOOD forms a genre of one – no other movie has dedicated itself in quite this way to probing exactly what it takes to be a mother, with both wry humour and an acute sense of authenticity.

Eliza Welch (Thurman) is a former fiction writer-turned-mom-blogger with her own site, “The Bjorn Identity.” Putting her deeper creative ambitions on hold to raise her two children, Eliza lives and works in two rent-stabilized apartments in a walk-up tenement building smack in the middle of an otherwise upscale Greenwich Village. Eliza’s good-natured but absent-minded husband (Edwards) seems tuned out to his wife’s conflicts, not to mention basic domestic reality, while her best friend Sheila (Minnie Driver) understands this – and Eliza -- all too well.

MOTHERHOOD is a hymn to the joys and sorrows of raising children, and the necessity of not losing yourself in the process.The DVD is available from 8th March 2010.

Log onto for more competitions to be won and details about the film!

I can't wait to watch this one - I always think I'm like Lynette on Desperate Housewives when her twins were small so I'm sure it'll strike a chord ! The picture on the DVD, with Uma Thurman looking totally shell-shocked, sums up how I feel some nights at the kids' bedtime (but I wouldn't change it for the world) ! Plus we've just had Juliette's 5th birthday party so it's oerfect timing.

The lovely people at Metrodome have kindly donated three copies of Motherhood on DVD for me to give away to readers of this blog. To be entered into the draw, just tell me in the comments box what you would love to receive as a mother's day gift (even if you're not a mum !) and leave me a way of contacting you or check back here after the closing date of Mother's Day Eve, 13/3. Open to UK residents only.

    I would love to be able to spend mother's day enjoying my husband and my daughter without the rushing around to see my mum and mum in law. Would also love hubby to the cooking, cleaning and ironing whilst I kick back with a good book and a naughty hot chocolate. And some lovely earring would go down a treat - one can hope lol.
