The best thing about Father’s Day this year is that it falls on Sunday. What a better day to watch movies that capture the essence of a relationship between a father and his kids.

Here are four movies that you shouldn’t miss if you love and care for your father.

 

To Kill A Mocking Bird

Atticus Finch, the lead character of the film, is the pillar of integrity, fighter of racial injustice, humble sharpshooter, and, of course, world’s greatest dad.

Big Fish

Directed by Tim Burton, Big Fish focuses on the strained relationship between a father and son, Ed and Will Bloom.

The God Father

It is about one man’s struggle to accept and eventually live up to the legacy his father has left him (even if that legacy isn’t the
most noble and honourable one).

The Pursuit of Happyness

This movie shows the lengths a father will go for his children. What makes this movie even more emotionally captivating is that Chris Gardner and his son, little Chris, are played by real-life father and son, Will and Jaden Smith.
