This Mother’s Day, Lakeshore Records reflects on several movies which tell the story of four different moms: Expecting, starring Michelle Monaghan (Better Living Through Chemistry); Little Miss Sunshine, starring Abigail Breslin (Perfect Sisters); People Like Us, starring Elizabeth Banks (Walk of Shame); and The Kids Are All Right, starring Julianne Moore, Annette Bening and The Hunger Games‘ Josh Hutcherson. Lakeshore Records is proud to have released the movie soundtracks to these endearing films.
Expecting also stars Radha Mitchell as “Lizzie,” who has given up trying to conceive after years of trying with her husband, until her best friend Andie (played by Michelle Monaghan), gets pregnant unexpectedly. Little Miss Sunshine (rent it on iTunes) is about a dysfunctional family who races across the country in a VW bus to get their little girl (Abigail Breslin) into a beauty pageant finals. The Kids Are All Right is about a modern family coming to terms with their daughter going off to college (Mia Wasikowska) and their son trying to find his biological father (Mark Ruffalo). People Like Us stars Chris Pine who, while taking care of the affairs of his recently deceased father, discovers he has a long-lost sister (Elizabeth Banks).
