Director Statement

I’m Laura, I’m the director of Mama’s Boy. I wrote this film after seeing the discussions and even TV shows around dating a Mama’s boy and thought I’d take it to the extremes. I wanted to explore the ideas of beauty and jealousy, and it has been a pleasure to see our actors bring it to life. Even with all the challenges of making this film, it has been a fantastic experience and I’m thrilled to see the script I wrote on screen.
