Relationship with Father

Post by Mary » Wed Nov 04, 2015 2:40 am

In this thread you can list movies that relate to father-child relationships.

This may include movies that brought up emotions for you regarding your own relationship with your father, or how fathers impact upon their children's lives, beliefs and emotions.

It may have characters in it that you connected to emotionally who were having difficulties in their relationship with their father or who appeared to receive a lot of love and support from their father.

These are some suggestions of the types of movies to list in this thread but please list any movie that highlighted an issue relating to father relationships for you.

"An aggressive father gets involved in street fighting and treats his son really badly (absent often, dishes out beatings, humiliates him) until near the very end, an accident which changes the father's attitude towards his son."

"It focuses firstly, on how as boys we were told to "be a man" by our fathers, to suppress emotion, to be tough. Later it talks about the severe consequences of this conditioning upon our relationship with ourselves, other men and women."

"This has become one of my favorite movies of all time, and absolutely one of the best for triggering father-based (and other family-based) emotions. I just adore it."

Title: When Did You Last See Your Father? (2007)

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0829098/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Contributed By: Amanda Stracey, Alex M

"General crappy emotional dynamics with no awareness from parents of the damage they are causing. Focus on father and son relationship but also looking at lack of challenge of fathers behaviour, mothers acceptance, compromise and refusal to challenge the dad and how resentment, anger and rebellion grows in the son. Also looks at sons mixed feelings of love and shame towards his dad."
