Grab your popcorn, some tissues and your favourite pair of trackies, because below are some of the greatest feel-good movies (available on
Stan) worthy of a binge session with mother dearest. Each and every one will leave you and your mum feeling all warm and fuzzy, which is obviously the main goal — because she's worth it.
A wholesome go-to that'll have everyone screaming happy tears. It's also an apt choice for a movie marathon with mum, as the entire narrative arc stems around a parent's love for their child and the lengths they'll go to in order to protect them. Did you just get shivers? Because I sure did.
