What is Mother’s Instinct about?

Based on its trailer, the Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain starrer movie deals with a serious and heavy topic that will surely keep the audience hooked.

The movie’s premise is set around the 1960s. The story captures two neighbors, Celine (Anne Hathaway) and Alice (Jessica Chastain), who are also best friends. 

The friendship appears to be strong and both praise each other. They share the same traditional lifestyle, where both of the actresses are portraying stay-at-home moms.

Their blooming friendship’s trajectory soon changes as Celin’s son falls off her home’s balcony, which leads him to his death. This is witnessed by her best friend, who is late to save him.

Soon their beautiful multicolored dresses change to black attires, mourning the death of Celine’s child.

This causes a rift in them, as Celine is skeptical about Alice's involvement. Celine’s behavior is changed towards her best friend.


There are multiple triggers that are felt by the two leads in the movie, including fear, paranoia, and suspicion.

At some point in the trailer, Celine takes Alice's son to the balcony. Alice asks Celine, “Did you put Theo on that balcony to test me?” To which Celine replies, “Do you think I’m capable of that?”
