'Adore,' the new film from director Anne Fontaine, based on the novel by Doris Lessing, has been raising eyebrows since it debuted at Sundance in January. The reason? It centers on the fairly taboo, Oedipal-esque conceit of two lifelong friends, now mothers, who fall for one another's (of-age) sons. In this case, the mothers -- Roz and Lil -- are played by Wright and Watts, and their sons -- Tom and Ian -- are played by James Frecheville ("Animal Kingdom") and Xavier Samuel ("The Twilight Saga: Eclipse"). Of course, a provocative situation like this is enough to strain any friendship.
In this exclusive preview of "Adore," Roz and Lil lie on the beach and reminisce about their younger days as they watch sons Tom and Ian in the distance, commenting on their athletic prowess. Surely, a sign of things to come.
"Adore" hits theaters and VOD September 6.
