16 Movies About Motherhood That Don’t Sugarcoat It

By  | 

Juno captures the selflessness of motherhood perfectly.

This is one of our favorite movies about motherhood of all time. And it’s not even about a mother, exactly! Juno, played by Ellen Page, is a young woman dealing with an unplanned pregnancy. The movie explores the often tumultuous territory of teen pregnancy, adoption, and motherhood in a lighthearted way. Juno may not be a mom in the sense that she doesn’t have a child of her own, but her decision to find the right parents for her unborn baby and the way she handles the adoption process is shockingly honest. Juno really nails what it means to be a mom.
