Roberts and Marshall have worked together on some of the most loved “rom-coms” in the last 25 years.

Julia Roberts stars alongside Richard Gere in this modern Cinderella story. Edward Lewis (Gere) hires an escort (Roberts) to be his date to social events. What begins as a formal arrangement soon turns into so much more. This movie is now seen by many as a classic and there is nothing better than sitting down and watching this movie with a group of girlfriends, a bottle of wine, and lots of ice cream.

In the third instalment of Garry Marshall’s holiday trilogy, Roberts plays TV personality Miranda.

“There are only a few days left before Mother’s Day, as several families have to come to terms with how they’ll be spending the big day. Whether it’s dealing with a new love, a lost love, or no love at all, this Mother’s Day will prove to be one for the romantic comedy ages – and one to be remembered by audiences for decades to come. Sweet, complex, funny and moving – just like moms across the world.”

Mother’s Day is directed by Garry Marshall and released in UK cinemas on Friday 10th June 2016.
