During the month of May, Movie Addict Headquarters is featuring a vintage ON DEMAND interview with Kimberly Potts, author and entertainment journalist, who discusses films featuring mothers as key characters. Among the many movies covered are: Mommie Dearest, Carrie, Postcards from the Edge, Terms of Endearment, Mildred Pierce, Monster-in-Law and Lorenzo’s Oil.
