About this deal

Synopsis: Nic (Annette Bening) and Jules (Julianne Moore) are lesbian mothers to 18-year-old Joni (Mia Wasikowska). The supportive family gets shaken up when Joni and her brother (Josh Hutcherson) meet their sperm donor father (Mark Ruffalo). Meryl Streep is magnificent as always, and her (sometimes tested) relationship with Sophie is both believable and relatable. The pair share some lovely moments, including getting ready for her wedding to the tune ‘Slipping Through My Fingers’.

Synopsis: A terminally ill woman has to settle on her former husband’s new lover, who will be their children’s stepmother. Synopsis: In this Broadway musical adaptation, Amanda Seyfried plays Sophie, a bride-to-be who is trying to identify her father out of three of her mother’s (Meryl Streep) former boyfriends. It was Disney’s third film adaptation of the novel, after the 1976 film Freaky Friday starring Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster, and the 1995 television film Freaky Friday starring Shelley Long and Gaby Hoffmann. It was subsequently adapted into a musical, produced by Disney, in 2017.

Accused of being a ‘helicopter mom’ Diane Keaton, at breaking point, says the heart-breaking line, ‘I just want you girls to understand something about motherhood. It’s the most impossible love. You tell me when it ends, you tell me when it stops.’

In the film, the characters played by Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon are often at odds with each other. In reality, the two are close friends, and chose this project specifically to work on together. Synopsis: A meddling mother tries to set her daughter up with the right man so her kid won’t follow in her footsteps. Synopsis: An unconventional single mother relocates with her two daughters to a small Massachusetts town in 1963, where a number of events and relationships both challenge and strengthen their familial bonds. The Kids Are Alright was nominated for 4 Academy-Awards, including Best Picture and is often listed on critics’ top ten lists.

Released in 2010, the film was among the first mainstream movies to show a married lesbian and bisexual couple raising two teenagers. Synopsis: The quintessential mother/daughter film, Debra Winger and Shirley MacLaine take us through 30 years of relationship ups and downs.

First issue: porn purveyors, consumers and especially watchdogs can't get it through their skulls that whether called art or entertainment this is all fictional stuff. (Even documentaries are actually fiction, carefully fabricated out of new or old footage to suit the filmmaker's point-of-view whether he be Michael Moore at one end of the spectrum or Fred Wiseman at the other.) Despite her mother’s objections, Akeelah doesn’t give up. Ultimately, her determination and genius wins her mother over and she comes to understand and share her dreams. Synopsis: An overworked mother (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her daughter (Lindsay Lohan) do not get along. What could unite mother and daughter more than to switch bodies?
