It is probably too late to do this, but what film would you recommend as Mother's Day Holiday viewing? This list may not be good, because it needs a better selection than what I got here. But each of these films have a strong positive image of a mother, or surrogate mother, as large part of the storyline even though the story may not be about the mother herself.
The list is here at http://www.imdb.com/list/ls069654104/...
Please no suggestions with a negative mother like "Mommy Dearest" or "Throw Man Form The Train".

One year for Mother's Day we went to see Hideous Kinky. It's a story of a mom and her two young daughters  struggling in '70s Morocco. It shows a mother as a real person, not a perfect, overly-loving saint, nor an evil witch out to destroy the world and her children. She makes mistakes but she does the best she can. It touched both my mother and I.

Poops I meant "Throw Momma From The Train", not "Throw Man Form The Train". Man, how I hate auto correct! Anyway, that type of negative mother image will not be considered. Only positive.

Also should I consider adding Sophie's Choice to this list? I'm on the fence on that one.

Oh, just to let you guys know, it was listen to this song that inspired this poll: "Someday" by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zMwIkxJ...
