Great Mom Movies

Just came across this list of great movies about moms. How many have you seen? I'm listing movies that may appeal to kids. Many of these movies would appeal to boys, too.

--------------

Not Without My Daughter (Sally Field rescues her kid)

Changeling (Angelina Jolie fights to find her real son)

Mask (Cher is biker single mom defending her son)

Forest Gump (mother is beloved and father is absent)

Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story (mother rescues son kidnapped by father and taken to South Korea; based on a true story)

Alien and sequel Aliens (ultimate strong woman, boys love movies)

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (strong women)

Fargo (hysterically funny Coen Brothers)

Erin Brockovich (mother isn't the point but good movie, strong mother)

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (a strong woman doesn't need man, boys love movie)

Kindergarten Cop (Arnold Schwartzenegger cute movie, kids like; mother is secondary character but the bad guy is the father)

Norma Rae (strong woman, organizes labor union)

All About My Mother (Spanish film, deep shit, kid dies, older teen only)

The Terminator movies, Terminator 2 (mother is hero and boys love the movie)

Mrs. Miniver (black and white, kids might not really be into it)

Mildred Pierce (black/white Joan Crawford classic)

Terms Of Endearment (imperfect mom movie)

Chocolat (maybe, shows mother's efforts, but good movie)

The Ring (Japanese original - mother rescues child. Horror movie. Older children only.)

Dark Water (Japanese original - mother rescues child. Mother dies in end. Horror movie. Older children only.)

Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman (history lesson too)

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and 2 sequels (warning very explicit sex and violence; mother is victim and daughter is hero, sex trafficking theme, bi-sexualism, subtitled)

---

I'll even name one good dad movie: "The Host". (Korean. Dad saves child but child dies in end. Monster movie. Kids, especially boys, will love it.)
