Top 3 Maternity Movies

Celebrating the airing of The Marvels of Rome, a drama about a woman who checks in a maternity ward waiting to give birth, where she meets a group of girls also expecting, we have selected three must-see movies about maternity. These productions will amuse you with the unexpected adventures of maternity!

Juno

An award-winning production, Juno is a coming-of-age drama starring Ellen Page in the title character. In the movie, 16-year-old Juno gets pregnant by a friend and quasi-boyfriend, Paulie, and decides to give the baby up for adoption. Juno received acclaim from critics, many of whom placed the film on their 2007 top ten movies. The film also received criticism and praise from members of both the anti-abortion and abortion rights communities regarding its treatment of the subject.

Juno won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and earned three other Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actress for Ellen Page.

Rosemary’s Baby

A masterpiece by the one and only Roman Polanski, Rosemary’s Baby stars Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, and Ruth Gordon. In the film, a young couple moves in to an apartment to find themselves surrounded by peculiar neighbors and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins to control her life. Ultimately, she begins to think that she carries the son of Satan.

Ruth Gordon won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in this film. Farrow's performance earned her numerous awards, including the Golden Globe for New Star of the Year – Actress, and established her as a leading actress.

Children of Men

A dystopian story, Children of Men deals with pregnancy in a very unique way. In the film, mankind has reached two decades of infertility by 2027 and society is in the brink of collapse. When the first pregnancy in 20 years comes, a British civil servant has to protect the mother and the future of the human race.

Children of Men became a landmark in Alfonso Cuaron’s career as a director, and won two BAFTA Awards in 2007, including Best Cinematography.
