PSA — Father's Day is here and I know for a fact that some of you are scrambling for last-minute gift ideas. Perhaps your dad is into the latest technological gadget or already preparing to grill the night away, but what about fathers who don't necessarily enjoy those things? Don't worry, you can still spend some serious quality time with your old man this Father's Day — and you don't even have to leave your couch to do it. Just check out these father-daughter movies on Netflix that will make you cry, because sometimes you just need a good tearjerker to really bond.
Not going to lie, father-daughter relationships on film and television can be a little awkward. Often times, they miss the mark and don't come off as organically as mother-daughter relationships do onscreen. So it can be difficult finding a great film that focuses on a dad and daughter duo that you can actually relate to. But from heartwarming flicks like Definitely, Maybe to Mulan, there are still plenty of father-daughter movies that feature an authentic representation of parental connection — you just have to know where to look.
That being said, remember that this list consists of movies on Netflix, so classics like Father of the Bride, Jersey Girl, and The Descendants aren't available at this time. While I highly recommend those titles, these movies are more than enough to make you and dad weep throughout Father's Day 2019.
