She added that her character in the movie depicts that women still has to bear the moral responsibility of motherhood, due to societal pressure.

"There is a huge societal pressure on women when it comes to motherhood, and these 'mommy cults' that go on." Emily said.

"It makes women feel that they have to be a bit defensive about the choices they make - whether they want to be a mother or whether they don't, whether they want to breastfeed or whether they don't. I could go on and on." She added further.

Blunt then went on to say: "In the domestic world, I think it's when women can be a bit cruel about each other, more so than any other environment. And I think this film really captures that..."

"I think women will really relate to the film and see aspects of themselves, or themselves fully, in any one of these characters." She concluded.
