7 Movies in Which an Adult Child Confronts an Estranged Parent

by Doug Schultz
Whilst watching Inside Llewyn Davis  (a truly excellent film, so brace yourself for this NITPICK), I was struck (STRUCK!) by how often films depict scenes in which a child confronts his or her estranged parent. Whether it be visiting a mother with dementia in a nursing home, or confronting a dickhead father who used to molest you, these movie kids JUST WANT A LITTLE CLOSURE (and maybe a hug? Let's not get greedy). Disclaimer: this list is by no means complete -- can you think of more?
