Most Inspirational Movie Mothers

List of the most inspirational mothers in film. These beloved movie moms stand out as some of the most nurturing, wise, and beloved characters in cinematic history. Well, not all of them - some stand as shining beacons of how not to raise children. The women on this list range from soccer moms to virtual super heroes, and both co-parents and famous single mothers round out the collection. Notably, a few well-known actresses made the list more than once, including Sally Field, Susan Sarandon, and Cher.
