Mother’s Day Movie Night

With lockdown restrictions still in full force, it’s safe to say that many of us won’t be able to celebrate Mother’s Day the way we’d have liked to this year.

With that in mind, we’ve put together some film and dinner combinations for all to enjoy!


It’s All Greek To Me

Mamma Mia

Enjoy Catherine Johnson’s classic movie musical, Mamma Mia on Netflix this Mother’s Day, perfect for those who want a feel-good, singalong, rom com.

On the Greek isle of Kalokairi, a single mom goes into a tizzy when her bride-to-be daughter invites three of Mom’s ex-lovers to the wedding. Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Amanda Seyfried all star in this Abba jukebox musical.

Why not add a Greek Mezze Platter and Ouzotini and help mum feel like she’s really relaxing on a Greek island?!


The Luck of the Irish

Ps. I Love You

P.S. I Love You is the ideal film for those who love a tear-jerker!

When she loses her beloved husband to a brain tumor, grieving widow Holly Kennedy learns that he left a series of letters behind to help her cope. Starring Gerard Butler and Hilary Swank.

Watch with a Spaghetti Bolognese and nice glass of wine (or a pint of Guinness if you’re really keen on a theme!)


Stirring Up Trouble


For those with little ones (or those without, who can appreciate a fantastic animated film!) Ratatouille is our recommendation for families this Mother’s Day.

In one of Paris’ finest restaurants, Remy, a determined young rat, dreams of becoming a renowned French chef, setting off a hilarious chain of events.

Of course, the evening wouldn’t be complete without an accompanying dish of…you guessed it, Ratatouille! Pair it with a glass of Bordeaux or grape juice for little ones.


A trip to The Sunshine State

Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar

Curzon are offering audiences the opportunity to watch brand new release Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar which we think looks like a whole lot of fun! From the creators of Bridesmaid’s, Barb and Star follows two single ladies seeking fun and frolics on a holiday to Vista Del Mar in Florida.

Enjoy this new comedy with a Florida style Seafood Platter and Sunshine Cocktail!


An Austen-noon Tea


Finally, period drama fans can treat their mother’s to a viewing of the 2020 release of Emma on Amazon Prime.

Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending, is reimagined in this delicious new film adaptation of Emma.
Make mum feel like a queen and treat her to a decadent Afternoon Tea. The perfect pairing for this comedy-drama.
