Directed by Wardrop (His & Hers), Mom and Me is a creative documentary that delicately challenges the familiar love story shared between a son and his mother. Oklahoma was recently voted the manliest state in the USA. Radio talk show host Joe Cristiano wants to investigate if the manliest men, in the manliest state in the Union, are willing to call in and discuss their mothers on air. It is a story that reveals comedy in the everyday and misery on some other days.
Mom and Me is the second feature documentary from Irish filmmaker Ken Wardrop. His debut film His & Hers was both a critical and box office success in Ireland. The film had its World Premiere at the Telluride Film Festival last year, before picking up the IFTA for Best Documentary earlier this year.
