Variance Films | Release Date: September 26, 2008
Summary: Marilyn Cooper is one of those moms—the kind who’ll call at 6:30 in the morning, or tell embarrassing stories about her son Noah to complete strangers, the kind that always has some bit of advice to impart. Because of this, Noah has always kept her at a distance. When she becomes convinced her husband is having an affair, she decides it’s time to “take a break”, and shows up on Noah’s doorstep, crying, with her bags and five foster dogs in tow. Already having lost his job, hosting an unwelcome house guest on his couch, and facing pressure from his wife Clare to start a family despite his fears of inadequacy, Noah now finds the mother he’s always kept at a distance living just down the hallway. Soon, Noah starts to realize that if he wants to stand up to the problems in his life, he’ll first have to stand up to his mother. As heartwarming as it is hilarious, Smother is a family film in the truest sense of the term—your family. (Variance Films)
