Reposted from last year: Movies are a great uniter, or can be, and they're a favorite way to kill time during a manufactured holiday. But Mother's Day can be a landmine, cinematically-speaking; there are so, so many ways a film choice can turn horrifically awkward. Some (not all!) of the above movies are excellent; just seek them out on another day — or, better yet, seek them out with anyone but your mother.
