Movies are an escape from reality, but also reflect it. It helps us understand what we have never gone through, but also connects to aspects in our life that we sometimes have trouble facing. Everyone has had parents; we all come from somewhere. Movies often emphasize rapports between parents and children, often problems arising. That is life. However, some families are lucky to be close-knit and are able to solve their situations. So, when I see loving and fun-loving families in films, it makes my heart glad that all families are represented as well.
Who are my favorite parents in movies (non-animated films?) Let’s find out here (in no order!)
Top Five Parents in Movies:
Easy A- Quirky, supportive, funny, playful, adaptable, and accepting. Everyone deserves parents like them.
Wonder- Parents who see past their child’s disability and will do everything for him show true love.
Harry Potter (Molly and Arthur)- They have seven children, but still love Harry as their own. These two have created the warmest house of love and show that family is all you need; they give each other strength uncompared.
Twilight- I know Renee and Charlie are divorced, but they show that some people are meant to be parents. They give Bella her space, respect her as a person, but come rushing to her side when she needs them, accepting all the changes that happen to her. Their daughter is their daughter and her in their lives is all that matters. Edward also has the most caring, tender parents in Esme and Carlise too. I cherish them all!
Hairspray- A cooky pair that love each other to the max. They worry about their little girl, but also accept how special she is, teaching her to be herself and change the world. Plus, they can really dance!
Hug an adult that changed your life! And Stay geeky! 🙂
