Mother’s Day is this weekend! Are you ready? Movie mothers and grandmothers give us their heart and soul, make the toughest decisions, and share their deepest emotions while putting their families first.
Moms are vital to each and every one of us; we wouldn’t be here without them! I know I wouldn’t be the person I am today without mine so take a moment and give that special lady a squeeze. Here are five women whose maternal instinct is on full blast. Now it’s your turn… what’s in your top 5?
1. Lena Younger – from A Raisin in the Sun, played by Claudia McNeil
2. Morticia Addams – from The Addams Family movies, played by Anjelica Huston
3. Maria – from The Sound of Music, played by Julie Andrews
4. Madame Souza – the grandmother from The Triplets of Belleville (it’s animated!)
5. Sophie Zawistowski – from Sophie’s Choice, played by Meryl Streep
