A Father's Love - A curation of movies about fathers
“… perhaps love, adopted a role called Being a Father so that his child would have something mythical and infinitely important: a Protector, who would keep a lid on all the chaotic and catastrophic possibilities of life.” – Tom Wolfe, The Bonfire of the Vanities.
This Father’s Day on CinemaWorld, we rediscover a love we tend to overlook at times. One that is as precious as a mother’s and just as unconditional and everlasting – A Father’s Love.
