Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday 22nd March and here in the One4all HQ, we plan to spend the day showering mum with fabulous gifts (we love our ‘Mum’ gift card) and watching the best movies about mother-child relationships, from the sweet and lovely to the hilariously complicated.
Grab the goodies and get ready to binge watch these 4 movies with mum this Mother’s Day.
The high-spirited, fiery headed Princess Merida is the best archer in the kingdom of DunBroch and is determined to break the country’s classic, limiting female traditions. However, her mum, Queen Elinor, has other plans– notably finding a suitable husband for her spunky daughter to settle down with. A fight between the pair leads to Merida fleeing to the woods and placing a curse on her mum that turns her into a bear. Like most things in life, on the mission to break the spell, Merida and Elinor become closer than ever.
‘Mamma Mia, here I go again, my my, how can I resist you?’- featuring ABBA hits, the iconic Meryl Streep and a sing-along with Pierce Brosnan, this is the wacky and wild tale of love you and mum can watch over and over again. Without telling her mum Donna, Sophie invites her three possible fathers to her Greek island wedding. This movie-musical will have you tapping your toes, shedding tears, and shower singing from start to finish.
The classic mum and daughter swap bodies story. Rebellious, high-schooler Anna and her strict mum Tess are having a difficult time seeing eye-to-eye. After they receive cryptic fortunes at a Chinese restaurant, the two wake up the next day to find they’ve magically switched bodies. As the pair work on a way to swap back, their relationship takes a turn to the bright side, with them both developing a new sense of respect and understanding for one another.
