Mother's Day is that one day dedicated to honouring those strong females that withstood bringing all of us into the world. Sure, they should be celebrated daily, but that doesn't always happen and for that we are thankful for the special day that is about all-thing mothers.
Perhaps you have an evening dinner planned or a trip to the spa, or a Raps game is on the agenda”whatever the case may be do something sweet for your mom. And, if you and your mom are more about the homebody life, do not worry, there's a handful of Mother's Day movies perfect to snuggle, laugh and cry to, together.
We're not saying this is the definitive list, the be all of end all script, or the "you must watch these or you fail as a kid" movies, but they are certainly worth investing in, especially around this time of year.
Stories We Tell
Everyone has a backstory, but some don’t even know what is really the truth in the backstory. Sarah Polley turns the lens inwards on her own life and seeks to fill the gaps of her family story involving her mother, Diane, who died when Polley was a young child. Secrets, lies, confusion and a hefty dose of serious sentiment all come into play in this film. If you’re a fan of docu-style flicks and so too is your mom, Stories We Tell is a good addition to this year’s viewing experience.
