I love a good tearjerker as much as the next overly sensitive crybaby, but ever since I became a mom, I have been even more sensitive to certain movies, especially those about mother-son relationships since I have a son myself. I like to think we are kind of BFFs and the mother-son movies on Netflix for Mother's Day will give you a way to bond with your own little guy — however *little* he may be. I tried picking up my five-year-old the other day to plop him in the Target shopping cart and it wasn't happening, so there's that.
There might not be a wide market for mother-son movies out there right now, but there is something so endearing about the relationship a mom and son can have. The Room probably shows this better than any movie on this list, as Brie Larson plays a kidnap victim who spends the first five years of her son's life with him in captivity. But The Switch, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman, also shows a special relationship between a mother and her young son.
If you aren't afraid to cry your eyes out this Mother's Day, these mother-son movies on Netflix are literally all you need. And maybe some tissues and snacks to go along with them.
