Can anyone suggest any good ones other than "Mommy Dearest"?

Chrysalis123 posted 1/25/2014 16:34 PM

Let's see:

Flowers in the Attic
Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood


Gaslight (even though this is not a parent situation)

Not movies that focus entirely on the Mom, but movies with NPD Moms:

Wedding Crashers
Throw Mama From the Train
Gypsy (from the fifties or sixties?)
The Grifters
Precious, Bashed on the Novel Push by Sapphire
Flowers in the Attic

What's going on?

Just saw August: Osage County.

So much FoO and dysfunction crammed into one movie!

Meryl Streep is awesome in it. (with Trigger Warning)

Running With Scissors

Not the parents, but the psychologist who 'adopts' him - there is a scene where he wants to build a shrine to his poo

The parents have other problems

I watched Gaslight last year. It was eerie seeing things done to another person that were done to me. Seeing her react in similar ways to me. So unnerving, yet freeing!

mchercheur, I read that linked thread and I think they modeled Meryl Streep's character in August: Osage County after your MIL. If you see it, I think it will hit close to home!

Thanks DixieD---I will definitely watch that one
