The Mothering Heart
Love will tear us apart and, occasionally, will bring us back together, too. D.W. Griffith's THE MOTHERING HEART tells the tale of a man and his wife separated by a drive for success and the temptations of another woman. Things spiral out of control until they return to the point where it began. Perhaps the responsibilities of parenthood will solidify their relationship? Have we arrived at a satisfactory and sensible conclusion or will the pattern begin again after the film ends? In the world of Biograph, no one can be certain.
