We celebrate the most significant moments that mothers and daughters share, and the perfect must-see mom and daughter movies for a bit of nostalgia.
You’ve raised her to be the best she can be, making sure you didn’t make the same mistakes your own mom made, so you deserve to relish the proud moments.
Even though you may not always be on the same page, there’s no relationship quite like the one between mother and daughter.
Here are our picks of the mother daughter movies that will remind you about the moments moms and daughters share.
When she’s your best friend
Before the awkward teenage years, you two are best friends. To her, you are her world, and all she wants is to spend hours decorating cupcakes and dancing to your favourite songs.
Film to Watch: Mamma Mia! One of the best mother and daughter movies to get your feet tapping and the tears flowing.
The afternoon you find her with your lipstick
Every mom has a photo from the first time her daughter got stuck into her make-up bag – bright red lipstick scrawled across her face, mascara striped across her forehead. It’s the one to bring out at her 21st.
Film to Watch: Little Miss Sunshine, to see Olive’s unforgettable dance at a junior beauty pageant.
Her first love
It’s hard not to get swept up when you lay eyes on your first crush. Every girl feels on top of the world, but when those butterfly emotions run dry, it’s never easy to say goodbye.
Film to Watch: Dirty Dancing for another look at love, with a little sass.
The day you can enjoy a glass of wine together
Gone are the days of underage drinking. Now when she comes home for a visit, or you meet for lunch, it’s like catching up with your best friend – and there’s always a glass of wine involved.
Film to Watch: Because I Said So. Diane Keaton always plays the mother role well, so it’s one of those movies to watch with mom that will really make you both chuckle.
