The Sky Is Pink
This Shonali Bose directorial has Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar playing the role of a couple and Zaira Wasim and Rohit Suresh Saraf as their children. Saoirse Ronan has done a marvellous job in bringing out on the screen the angst of adolescence. The story is about Chopra and Akhtar’s characters dealing with their tumultuous marriage and their daughter’s illness simultaneously. Kapoor & Sons
A gripping drama about a dysfunctional Indian family, Kapoor & Sons explores family dynamics in Indian, or more broadly South Asian families, in a surprisingly mature way — a rarity for Bollywood. Tom Hanks in a still from Forrest Gump. View this post on Instagram

Is it even a movie date with your mom if she doesn’t have strong opinions on every decision the characters make? It is so astoundingly rich visually and emotionally that it is hard to put into words. Written by Kshitij Rawat

Here are a few movies that you can watch with your mother today. Wasim’s Aisha suffers from severe combined immunodeficiency and pulmonary fibrosis. We rarely see the relationship between a mother and her daughter put on screen in such a believable way. The streaming giant revealed eclectic choices that subscribers can spend time watching with their mothers. If you can stay with it long enough, however, Roma is extremely rewarding. A large chunk of the movie explores the relationship of Gump, Hanks’ titular character, with his mother, played by Sally Field. The tracking shots are something to behold. There is subtlety here, and the viewer never feels overwhelmed. (Photo: Paramount Pictures)
