50 Must See Movies Mothers

50 Must-See Movies: Mothers

By Nell Minow

No relationship is more primal, more fraught, more influential, more worried over, more nourishing when good and more devastating when bad that our connection to our mothers. Mom inspires a lot of movies in every possible category, from comedy to romance to drama to crime to animation to horror, from the lowest-budget indie to the biggest-budget prestige film. A lot of women have been nominated for Oscars for playing mothers and just about every actress over age 20 has appeared as a mother in at least one movie. Nell Minow, a critic who writes as “The Movie Mom” lists 50 classic movie mothers, the good, the bad, and the downright nightmarish.
