Mammoth belongs to the genre of drama and the plot centers on the life of a successful New York couple. This is an affluent family, where the husband is a globetrotting businessman and his wife Ellen is an emergency surgeon. As they keep busy with their own schedules, their eight year old daughter Jackie is rather compelled to spend most of her waking hours in the company of her Filipino nanny. The film with a release date on November 20, 2009, is actually an emotional take on the minds of this couple as they begin to suffer the guilt of not giving enough attention to their only child.
Mammoth is directed by Lucas Moodysson and is a revelation of sorts as one can feel the changes following in the lives of the members of this family after Leo visits Thailand on a business trip. He is also the owner of a successful website. You would also come to know on how the family of this nanny in Philippines is suffering due to the absence of Gloria. In Thailand, Leo gets involved in a series of actions that leave this impact on his family. Here, the most interesting and exciting part is the fact that Leo is completely oblivious of the implication of his actions.
