This is common knowledge that parenthood is a very different thing for a man and a woman. “While a woman becomes a mother when she becomes pregnant, a man becomes a father when he looks at his child for the first time.” Though it is said that parents love their children equally, a lot of people will agree that fathers, usually, favour their daughters. Even if there is no favouritism in some cases, fathers are a very influential figure in their daughters’ lives. The complexity of their relationships may arise due to the polarity in their personalities. There is love, and sometimes, there is resentment, too! In any case, one cannot deny that the nature of this relationship is always strong.
With such a complex relationship comes good subject matter. Hollywood has used this theme to create some powerful stories. Following is the list of top father-daughter relationship movies ever made. You can watch some of these best father daughter movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. These films deal with both good and bad of the dad daughter relationship.
