We have oodles of films about moms and daughters, fathers and daughters, and fathers and sons (the sports activities style can be in disaster with out them). However in honor of this Mom’s Day, I want to rejoice a rarer and neglected style onscreen: moms and sons.
The mother-son bond is a sacred one and, I’d argue, essentially the most fascinating of the parent-child combos. In any case, what even is a stereotypical mother-son exercise? Cooking? Taking part in catch? Escaping an assassination try on the again of a sandworm? The dynamic of a son and his mother defies expectations, which is why its portrayals in movie are so assorted and sophisticated.
I’ve combed by means of the annals to search out 47 onscreen duos from throughout genres, time durations, and household dynamics. We have divorced mothers, single mothers, married mothers, and a mother residing with a cat possessed by the spirit of her useless husband. We have loving sons, precocious sons, rebellious sons, and sons who occur to be the Antichrist.
