As a movie fanatic myself, and when a holiday comes along, I tend to look for movies that correspond with the themes that the holiday being celebrated represents. In honor of Mother’s day I have created a list for those looking to watch a movie that shows the essence of the mother/daughter relationship. So pick a film, jump on the couch and enjoy!
- Mamma Mia (2008)
A bride-to-be tries to find her biological father in time for her wedding to the dismay of her mother in this musical film.
- Freaky Friday (2003)
A remake of the classic film, a mother and her daughter with a terrible relationship switch lives, and see what it is like to live in each others shoes.
- Stepmom (1998)
A dying mother has to accept her ex-husband’s new wife. Additionally, so do her children.
- The Kids Are All Right (2010)
Two children who were conceived by artificial insemination, living with their 2 mothers, slowly integrate their father into their life.
- New Year’s Eve (2011)
This movie follows multiple story lines and character relationships all leading up to New Years Eve. The mother/daughter relationship of Sarah Jessica Parker and Abigail Breslin is sure to give this movie that good-and-fuzzy feeling.
I hope you enjoyed these recommendations, if you have any of your own feel free to comment them below!
Have a good Mother’s Day!
