16 Movies About Motherhood That Don’t Sugarcoat It
No list of movies about motherhood would be complete without Steel Magnolias.
In a nutshell, motherhood is trying our damndest to protect our kids while still giving them the freedom to fly. And no movie captures that quite as well as Steel Magnolias. We have seen this movie HUNDREDS of times and still cry at every scene that we cried at the first time. From M’Lynn tsk-tsking Shelby for wanting too much to her swooping in to literally save her life when she goes into diabetic shock, it’s just perfect at every turn. And the finals scenes, watching M’Lynn process the grief of losing her beloved daughter, will never not tear our mama hearts to shreds.
