Element Pictures Distribution has acquired the Irish and UK rights to Ken Wardrop’s acclaimed ‘Mom and Me’, which is nominated for an IFTA for Best Documentary at this weekend’s ceremony (April 9th).

Ken and Element previously worked together on the release of the critically acclaimed and box-office hit ‘His & Hers’ in 2010 which remains the highest-grossing Irish documentary of all time.

Speaking on the upcoming release, Director Ken Wardrop commented that “I'm delighted to have the opportunity to once again be working with Element Distribution. We had an incredible journey with ‘His & Hers’ and I’m hopeful that ‘Mom and Me’ will similarly capture the hearts of Irish audiences.”

‘Mom and Me’ premiered at the 2015 Telluride Film Festival to very positive reviews with The Guardian awarding the film four stars and calling it “a devastating study of motherly love in US's manliest state”.

In ‘Mom and Me’, Wardrop weaves a sympathetic portrait of what mothers mean to their sons, showing a vulnerable side of American masculinity that viewers rarely see. These Oklahoma men come from all walks of life, ranging from a war veteran and a prison inmate to a cowboy preacher and a district attorney. Their mothers are just as complicated: spunky, resilient, demanding, generous, and iconoclastic. As these mothers and sons ride horses, shoot guns, and discuss their deepest feelings, Wardrop’s compassionate observation reveals the universality that underlies this most particular relationship.

Directed by Wardrop, ‘Mom and Me’ was produced by Andrew Freedman with backing from The Irish Film Board.

Element Distribution will release ‘Mom and Me’ to Irish cinemas and on-demand this summer.
