Mrs. Gump taught Forrest that he could do and be anything. And he believed her every word.

As a mom, I love watching movies with a good mother character. Someone authentic and inspiring whom I can also relate and be challenged by. Moms and mom-figures in movies are sometimes our best role models. I’ve compiled a gallery of 15 of my favorite moms in film.

Who would you add to the list?

    I’m sure this is a great list.

    But the slides are loading so slowly I’m never going to find out which movies, which characters, which actresses are on it.

    I’m sure the photo’s add something … but I’m not sure what.

    Couldn’t we just have a text list that I could use for choosing movies to watch?

    Oh honey – Evelyn Ryan in The Prize Winner of Defiance Ohio. Best movie mom ever. Based on a real mom, I think.
