Besides the now traditional Facebook tribute post, flowers, or a fancy meal at a restaurant to celebrate Mother’s Day, a really intimate way to spend the special day is to stay home and enjoy stories about moms, motherhood, and being a woman.
Five Netflix gems to binge on with your mom this Mother’s Day!
It may sound simple, but Netflix on Mother’s Day is perfect to get cozy with mom as you can enjoy good programs at home. Catch these gems that you can stream using SKY’s unlimited fiber broadband:
1) “MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS” (Susan Sarandon, Mira Sorvino, Sharon Stone)
“Mothers and Daughters” is a drama sprinkled with honest conversations with Susan Sarandon, Mira Sorvino, and Sharon Stone play moms who have up-and-down relationships with their daughters. All the stories are weaved together when a photographer (Rigby Gray) who is pregnant, decides to capture motherhood with her lens to document the complex mother-daughter relationships of her subjects. But her project also leads her to a personal journey –coming to terms with her relationship with her estranged mother.
2) “BABY MAMA” (Tina Fey and Amy Poehler)
Surrogacy becomes a crazy and hilarious journey in “Baby Mama” with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as lead stars. In the comedy film, Tina breathes life into Kate, a 37-year-old successful and single executive determined to have her own baby, who bumps into Angie (Amy), an immature, working girl as her unusual baby mama. What’s supposed to be a vibrant motherhood experience that Kate imagined becomes a rollercoaster ride as she and Angie clash too many times, while preparing for the baby’s arrival.
3) “THE BLIND SIDE” (Sandra Bullock)
Sandra Bullock won her first Oscar in “The Blind Side,” where she plays Leigh Anne, an affluent woman who takes in Big Mike, a homeless teenager. Despite the raised eyebrows of her peers, Leigh Anne and her well-to-do family embrace big Mike as one of their own and manage to nurture his athletic skills, leading him to become a remarkable athlete.
4) “MY HAPPY FAMILY” (La Shugliashvili)
This entry to the 2017 Sundance Film Festival is about Manana (La Shughliashvili), a middle-aged wife and mother of two who arrives at a life-changing decision to live on her own –an act that is perceived disgraceful in their culture. Manana’s reasons for leaving become a mystery to her conservative and multigenerational household, but she finds solace in finally living the independent and fearless life she imagined.
5) “HARD KNOCK WIFE” (Ali Wong)
Gear up for an intense laugh out loud session as stand-up comedian Ali Wong marks her comeback on Netflix with her second original comedy special, “Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife.” Dropping on Netflix this Mother’s Day (May 13), Ali unapologetically gets real about the nasty and funny truths of motherhood and married life: from the struggles of breastfeeding to striking a balance between family and career life.
