I've missed doing my Movie Madness Monday posts. So they are back! Mother's Day is coming soon here in the States and so I thought an ode to mothers movie list would be fitting.
The 1959 version of Imitation of Life and Term of Endearment are tear jerkers for me. The selfless giving of a mother to her daughter and the unique connection between a mother and daughter are what make me love these two films to bits. Mrs. Miniver and I Remember Mama are both about tough mamas. There's no denying they depict mothers who are brave and full of self sacrifice.
I find all four of these selections to be loving examples of what being a good mother means. None of it is easy but in the end we do it all for the love and happiness of our child.
