Celebrate Family By Watching These Heartwarming Movies

The family is all together for the holiday. It is the perfect time to relax and enjoy each others' company. Be sure to celebrate family relationships with one of these films. These favorites not only highlight the beauty and love of family, but more specifically the importance of Grandparent/child relationships. We love you Grandma and Grandpa!

Little Miss Sunshine (2006)

This film centers around an eccentric family on their journey to a pageant show called Little Miss Sunshine. The Hoover family consists of Olive (Abigail Breslin) a budding young lady, overworked mom Sheryl (Toni Colette), the stressed and impatient dad (Greg Kinnear), the brooding teen Dwayne (Paul Dano), the quirky uncle Frank (Steve Carell), and of course the drug addicted and socially irreverent Grandpa Edwin (Alan Arkin).

While the family dynamics are a bit rough around the edges that is what makes this film so honest. Things aren't perfect, they are relate-able. The relationship between Arkin and Breslin is sure to warm the heart and invoke smiles.

 In Her Shoes (2005)

Toni Colette strikes again in this dramadey also starring Cameron Diaz and Shirley MacLaine. Rose (Colette) is the business oriented sister of free spirited Maggie (Diaz). The relationship between the two is complicated when Maggie sleeps with Roses boyfriend truning their already complicated relationship into a real mess.  In steps Grandma Ella (MacLaine) whose relationship with the girls blossoms changes and growth in all.

 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory (1971)

The classic tale of young Charlie Bucket (Peter Ostrum) who wins the trip of a lifetime focuses more on relationships than it does chocolate. Charlie's chaperone Grandpa Joe (Jack Albertson) is along for the journey through the magical factory. Bonus points for the prominent comparisons of familial relations between the lucky children and their guardians.
