Father’s Day is a great time of year to watch movies with your dad. Many times, the hardest part of this process is finding the right movies. Here are a few movie picks that should be loads of entertainment for you and your father.
#1 Grace Unplugged (2013)

He has become a Christian, turned from drugs, and now he and Grace lead worship at their church. Grace pursues a singing gig that requires her to leave the state, and sing mainstream songs against her father’s wishes.
This movie is realistic and shows how fatherhood is not easy, but something that creates a forever bond between a man and his child.
#2 Everybody ‘s Fine (2009)
In this story, a father, played by Robert De Niro, travels different states to each of his grown children’s houses. He asks each of his children if they are happy, and they say they are, but something seems off. One son isn’t home when he visits, and his children have to learn the importance of telling the truth.
This movie is a nice pick that points to the importance of honest communication in family. A great film to watch with your dad, on any occasion.
#3 The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
A father struggles to find a way to take care of his son, with the job of selling medical products that very few people want. He goes on a journey, in search of something that will make him happy. He wonders if happiness is an illusion, and tries to find a better childhood for his son than he had. Based on a true story.
This relates to fathers who have had to sacrifice things that were important to them for the sake of their children.
#4 To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
The story of a lawyer named Atticus Finch and his son and daughter. This classic movie was based on the classic book by Harper Lee. Atticus proves that he is a good single dad; from shooting a rabid dog, to talking nicely to a rude old woman. This movie is great for opening eyes to what the south was like over 50 years ago.
It’s wonderful for you and your dad to see, because it focuses on being a man of honor and dignity, even when everyone else disagrees with you. There is something any person can take away from this movie.
