Fatherhood is a very complex thing, especially in the 21st century. Family structures of the past are not always prevalent in the lives of many people not just in America, but around the world. For some, a dad isn’t always the man they share half of their chromosomes with. For most, the honor of being called “dad” lies on the shoulders of the one who filled the role of the father figure—whether that’s a dad, a granddad, a mentor, or whatever. No matter what, though, one thing remains certain: Father’s Day is a holiday worth celebrating.
It’s a thankless job, and one that comes with all kinds of expectations and standards and responsibilities to the child or children. Naturally, it’s a gold mine of cinematic potential. From bad dads to great dads to lost and found dads, these are the ten best movies about fatherhood.
