What’s a good way to spend time with your family on Mother’s Day? Watching a movie, of course. It’s relaxing, doesn’t require you to go out somewhere if you’re feeling like staying in, and the best part, it’s free. So, we rounded up five of our favorite movies that are streaming on Netflix. Of course, some of these movies are catered to different age groups, but we don’t have to tell you that.
Here are our choices:
1. Erin Brockovitch
Julia Roberts won an Oscar for her performance playing a single mom seeking social justice.
2. Forrest Gump
“My mama always said life is like a box of chocolates.”
Nina Davenport chronicles her journey at becoming a single mom at age 41.
4. Dear Frankie
Frankie grows up not knowing who his dad is, because his father left. So his mom, Lizzie, concocts a lie, telling him that his father is a merchant seaman. The rest, of course, follows suit.
Two teenagers with lesbian moms meet their biological father for the first time. Hilarity ensues.
