Kathleen Turner clutches a large kitchen knife, reday to stab somebody.

About Serial Mom

Beverly Sutphin (Kathleen Turner) is a suburban housewife secretly prone to murdering her neighbours for perceived crimes against polite society in John Waters’ fabulously over-the-top skewering of true crime obsession and celebrity culture.

Putting a twist on the everyday mediocrity of suburban life, Turner turns the traditional, apple pie making American housewife into a blood-spattered psycho in one of Waters' most enjoyably insane features.

The screening will be preceded by a live onstage introduction from Dr Sabina Stent.

Screening as part of the Bad Mums: Motherhood In Cinema season to accompany the touring exhibition Acts Of Creation: On Art and Motherhood.
