There’s something special about seeing motherhood play out on screen. Sure, Hollywood doesn’t always get it right, but when they do, it can be down right inspiring. And who doesn’t need a little mom-spiration every now and then? We’ve had fun combing our memories (and the inter webs) for some of the most memorable movie moms—and let us say, there were so many powerful performances to choose from! From the sweet and tender to the intense and overbearing, we’ve gathered 30 mama roles that are certainly unforgettable. Check out our slideshow below to see the ones we love most!

Oh man, Bjork in Dancer killed me. Couldn’t stop crying. I also gotta put a mention in for Sarah Polley in “My Life Without Me”. So much crying. And those movies were before I had kids. I don’t think I could watch either now.
