The mother/daughter relationship is a tangled web of emotions, fraught with
love, anger, compassion, laughter and joy. But throw a wedding into the mix
and everything becomes that much more intense. Unveiled: The
Mother/Daughter Relationship
is a candid, revealing look at mothers and
daughters in the throes of planning a wedding. Rich in verité-style
cinematography complemented by insightful interviews, Unveiled
presents a close-up portrait of three sets of mothers and daughters who 'tell
all' in this highly-charged film: Sabina and Shari--A relationship of
conflicting expectations, disappointment and bittersweet love. Ruth and
Carline--Carline doesn't share as much of her life with her mother as Ruth
would like... and it is driving Ruth crazy. Pearl, Rhonda and Heather--Pearl
is getting married for the second time. Her eldest daughter, Rhonda, shepherds
Pearl through the excitement and anxieties by orchestrating many of the plans.
An entertaining and richly textured film spiced with humour, pathos,
frustration, resentment and love, Unveiled explores the myths and
realities of one of the most complex human connections.
