Sober Film Critic James Brown97 - Despite its rather soft title, Mommy is a fierce drama that serves as the ultimate test of a mother's love.

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine70 - The film could easily have existed on the power of mother and son, but it's made even more faceted by the arrival of the neighbor, Kyla (Suzanne Clément) who's timid, mousy demeanor and stutter belie the strength beneath. Her own situation is sketchy, she's a school teacher on sabbatical with a husband and daughter, who live with her right across the street, but she can't seem to connect with them at this juncture in her life. Oddly, she can connect with Die and Steve.
