Best Single Mama Movies

by mssinglemama on November 14, 2007

I don’t know about you, but movies just aren’t the same anymore. A lot of things aren’t. If I am going to take a few hours to sit down and watch one it better be good, or I flip it off within the first 20 minutes.

Last night I watched Paris, Je Taime (Paris, I Love You). It was unbelievable. There are 18, maybe more, short 5 minute love stories from Paris. Love stories you wouldn’t expect. Love between divorced couples, old couples, young couples, friends and a few on the love between a mother and her child. Some made me cry, some made me laugh and some made me believe in love again.
One story shows the strong will and determination of a single mother, completely driven by her love for her son. Warning. This might make you cry.

And the best single mom movie ever…Chocalot, take a peak. This movie has it all. The stresses of being a single mother and the huge benefits. Sex. Love. Chocolate. Johnny Depp. What more could you ask for? And it’s probably one of the most beautiful movies I’ve ever seen. Here’s the original preview.

I totally agree about Chocolat. The first time I saw it was after I had gotten a divorce some years back and just fell in love with it. Though I wasnt a mom at the time, I wanted so bad to cook everything in chocolate, be french, and of course be with Johnny Depp. Though its not a single mom movie, I love Under the Tuscan Sun. Its so uplifting. Yes, I also wanted to move to Italy and buy a villa in Tuscany.

Though it’s a single dad movie, “Dan In Real Life” inspires me, I love all of the characters in it, it makes me laugh and cry at the same time :)
