08 Jan 2014
Nic Rouleau: "Mama." I am the ultimate Mama's Boy. I talk to my mom on the phone at the very least once a day, often more. When I was young, I would sit up in my room playing "Mama" by the Spice girls and "The Perfect Fan" by the Backstreet Boys on loop, over and over: two of the ultimate 90s "I Love Mom" power anthems!
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
