In a world where one can not use their eyes, Malorie will have to rely on the rest of her senses to usher two kids to safety. More than being a story of survival, 'Bird Box' follows Malorie's journey to motherhood as she finally accepts the two children as her own. 

Freaky Friday

'Freaky Friday'

What if you and your mom could exchange bodies for one day? Will you be up for the challenge? You would probably scream a big NO! That is exactly what 'Freaky Friday' is all about. The 2003 fantasy-comedy film's hilarious scenes will let you learn the lessons without having to experience the troubles firsthand. 

 Because I Said So

'Because I Said So'

Is your mom not allowing you to have a boyfriend yet? Or does she always tries to meddle with your relationships in the smooth ways only mothers can? Then you should see this film together! 'Because I Said So' follows Daphne (Diane Keaton), a loving but overbearing mother of three, who tries to find a match for her heart-broken younger daughter. 



Disney and Pixar's animated film is more than just a movie encouraging young little girls to be Brave (just like its title). It's also a tale of a daughter who tries to save her mother from a curse. 

The Blind Side

'The Blind Side'

'The Blind Side' is based on the true story of Michael Oher, an American football offensive lineman who overcame an impoverished upbringing to play in the National Football League, thanks to the support of a loving adoptive mother played by Sandra Bullock. This film proves that having someone to support and believe in you can change your entire life forever. 

Bad Moms

'Bad Moms'

Do you think your mom is getting tired of being a regular, goody-two-shoes mom? Then 'Bad Moms' will help your mom loosen up. This film will make your mom realize that it's okay to be not a perfect mom all the time because there is no such thing as a perfect mother in the first place. 

Dumplin- Netflix


It's hard enough to grow up in a society obsessed with physical beauty, especially when you are overweight, and even more especially when your mother is a petite and gorgeous beauty queen. When Dumplin decided to enlist in the beauty pageant headed by her mother, what started as a "protest in heels" turned out to be a great opportunity for the two to reconnect and understand each other. 



Starring Uma Thurman, 'Motherhood' depicts the everyday struggles that women have to go through in their lives. The extremely relatable scenes of this film will make you appreciate the sacrifices your mother has to go through to raise you. 

I Don't Know How She Does It

' I Don't Know How She Does It'

This one is for the supermoms out there. Sarah Jessica Parker stars as a mom, juggling raising kids, being a wife, and having a successful career.
