25 Memorable Mothers Across Film History

"These films represent the cultural diversity of motherhood throughout the world. They are single, widowed, and married. They portray the wide spectrum of emotions every mother feels when doing one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs in the world, raising a child. The women on this list fight to balance dreams they thought were long dead with meeting the demands of caring for another human. They go to any means necessary to protect their children—they save, advocate, and nurture."
