Back to School Mom (2015) Rated TV-14

A 41-year-old woman goes back to school to finish her degree; there, she becomes friends with the son she gave away 20 years earlier. Starring Kimberly Elise, Denzel Whitaker, and Loretta Devine.

This film takes a common story and turns it on its head. We have a woman who decides to go back to school and get her degree, nothing new there, but she discovers her son, whom she gave away years ago. Now, the story becomes strange as she somehow knows that he is her son. I just felt the whole film bordered on unrealistic. How realistic is it that a woman would be attending the same school as her biological child? Then you have her becoming friends with him before telling him who she really is. I just can’t help but think, how realistic is this? I also think this film is unrealistic in regards to the family relationships between biological and adoptive families. This film is not worth a watch.
