Mask shows us just how far a mother will go to protect her child.

Cher takes NO SHIT when it comes to making sure her son Rocky has the best that life can offer him. She is the ultimate mama bear, and the entire film is a testament to what a mom will go through to advocate for her kids. Our absolute favorite scene, hands down, is the school registration scene. “Do you teach algebra and biology and English here? Those are his needs.” The film is based on the true story of Roy L. “Rocky” Dennis, a young man with craniodiaphyseal dysplasia. Cher plays Rusty, his troubled mom who ends up being saved by him, just as much as she saves him. It’s a heartbreaking story, and a fierce portrayal of motherhood and love.
