Mother's Day is right around the corner, so why not enjoy these mother-themed movies to help get you in the mood of celebrating what makes mom so great?
While you may be apart from your mom on Mother's Day, these five movies may make you want to pick up the phone and give her a call. With heartwarming messages and family-centered themes, these films will undoubtedly pull on the heart strings.
Here is Enstars' list of five movies to watch in preparation for Mother's Day:
Mrs. Doubtfire - 1993
This unconventional comedy features Robin Williams playing an actor getting divorced who just wants to spend time with his kids during the custody battle. So he does what any desperate dad would do and dresses up like a maid! Williams truly inhabits a motherly role as the film explores the need for parents to be with their children.
The Blind Side - 2010
Another fan favorite movie, The Blind Side celebrates the idea that moms don't just nurture their children. The true story of homeless football player Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) is a touching one as Leigh Anne Tuhoy (Sandra Bullock) takes him in and gives him a place to stay.
Forrest Gump - 1994
While this classic film mostly centers on Forrest (Tom Hanks), his relationship with his "mama" (Sally Field) is the emotional centerpiece of the film and will truly have you sobbing by the end.
Erin Brockovich - 2000
A prime example of mothers "doing it for themselves," as the kids like to say, Erin Brockovich shows the tenacity of moms everywhere. Erin Brockovich (Julia Roberts) is an unemployed single mom who almost single-handedly takes down a corrupt company.
Steel Magnolias - 1989
A "chick flick" in the very best way, Steel Magnolias is the ultimate movie that will make you want to call your mom. The film celebrates motherhood, friendship and all of things that make women great.
