Mother's Boys is a 1993 thriller movie revolving around a mother who has just gone through a painful divorce with her husband. The film features a star-studded cast including Jamie Lee Curtis, Peter Gallagher, Joanne Whalley and Vanessa Redgrave. Curtis plays the role of Jude, a woman who has just gotten divorced from Robert (played by Peter Gallagher), the father of their three children. The movie opens with Jude and her children moving back to her hometown, where she and her siblings had grown up in. Jude is still reeling from the divorce and is struggling to adjust to her new life. She is also trying her best to be a good mother to her children, who are still affected by the divorce.

Shortly after moving to her hometown, Jude's ex-husband, Robert, comes back into her life. He tries to rekindle their relationship, but when Jude refuses to give in to his advances, Robert turns to violence. Jude soon realizes that Robert's intention is to take the children away from her and have them all to himself.

As she is struggling to keep her family together, Jude begins to question whether she is doing the right thing. She starts to think that she might be the cause of the problems with Robert and that perhaps she should give him another chance. Jude's family and friends, however, are not too sure about Robert's true intentions and try to protect her and the children.

The movie takes a dark turn when Robert's mother, Lydia (played by Vanessa Redgrave), shows up at Jude's doorstep. It turns out that Lydia is very manipulative and is encouraging Robert to take the children away from Jude. Jude is initially wary of Lydia, but as the two get to know each other better, she begins to open up to her. Lydia becomes like a mother figure to Jude and the children.

As the tension mounts, Jude is forced to confront her past and come to terms with the fact that her relationship with Robert was not as perfect as she had once believed. She is also forced to confront her own insecurities and fears, something that she had been avoiding for far too long.

Mother's Boys is a psychological thriller that explores themes of love, betrayal, and manipulation. The movie is dark and intense, and it keeps the audience on the edge of their seats until the very end. The performances by the cast are exceptional, particularly that of Jamie Lee Curtis who shines in her role as a mother who is trying to do what is best for her children.

In conclusion, Mother's Boys is a must-watch for anyone who loves a good thriller movie. It offers an intense and gripping storyline, with exceptional performances from its talented cast.
