Both stars were accompanied by their respective spouses at the April 19 event, while their co-star Kerry Washington opted to make solo appearance.
The Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles, California was invaded by the cast of "Mother and Child" on Monday, April 19. That night, Sony Pictures Classics held a premiere for the movie and a number of top notch celebrities were seen gracing the red carpet.
Annette Bening who takes one of the lead roles in the film was seen coming hand-in-hand with actor husband Warren Beatty. Her co-star Samuel L. Jackson was also not alone that night as he was accompanied by wife Latanya Richardson.
Another lead actress Kerry Washington was later seen hitting the red carpet, followed by other cast members such as Brittany Robertson, Gloria Garayua, Tatyana Ali and Marc Blucas. Moreover, director Rodrigo Garcia also did not miss the event.
Meanwhile, Naomi Watts who lands a key role and stars opposite Jackson in the film was not captured by cameras at the premiere. Though so, the special screening was additionally supported by the presence of some celebrity guests including Amanda Seyfried, Samm Levine and Quinton Aaron.
"Mother and Child" is a story of three women whose lives linked with a common core: they have all been profoundly affected by adoption. Bening's Karen has been haunted by her baby whom she gave up at birth 35 years ago. Watts' Elizabeth is an adopted child and while she's a bright and ambitious lawyer, she's a flinty loner in her personal life. Washington's Lucy is just embarking with her husband on the adoption odyssey, looking for a baby to become their own.
This drama movie will be dropped in limited U.S. theaters on May 7, the same day when "Iron Man 2" will open wide in the U.S.
