From pacing in the hospital corridor to driving to the medical store in the middle of the night, fathers do everything for us. Hiding behind the veil of strength and strictness, there lays a fragile, protective heart that doesn’t say much but would do anything for his child.

On 16 June, we celebrate Father’s Day by listing eight movies portraying fatherly love like no other. Father of the Bride
