Mano gyvenimo zuvis (2003)

A frustrated son tries to determine the fact from fiction in his dying father's life. (125 mins.)

“ This movie is about lots of things, but the part that relates to family has to do with growing up to see parents as people, and how to reconcile the mythic characters of childhood with the mortals they really are. ” - muffinpancake

Image of Dan in Real Life“ There are some grating scenes involving the romantic subplots, but I don't think I've seen another movie whose ensemble cast so convincingly portrays a real family. ” - muffinpancake

6.

\Nuotakos tevas (1991)

With his oldest daughter's wedding approaching, a father finds himself reluctant to let go. (105 mins.)

“ Though ostensibly a wedding movie, at its heart, this movie is about the relationship between a daughter and her family as she moves from engagement to marriage, specifically between her and her father. A sweet movie, and I hear the 1950 original is worth seeing as well, if not more so. ” - muffinpancake

7.

Home for the Holidays (1995)

After losing her job, making out with her soon-to-be former boss and finding out that her daughter plans to spend Thanksgiving with her boyfriend, Claudia Larson faces spending the holiday with her family. (103 mins.)

9.

The Kids Are All Right (2010)

Two children conceived by artificial insemination bring their biological father into their non-traditional family life. (106 mins.)
