Mum Factor: Sassy Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) gives as good as she gets, as evidenced by her opening monologue: “Retire? I’m at the top of my game! Come on, girls, leave the saving the world to the men? I don’t think so!”
Mrs. Miniver (1942)
Greer Garson is Mrs. Miniver, the matriarch of a middle-class family experiencing life in the first months of World War II, dodging bombs and protecting their family the best they can. Directed by William Wyler

The Sound of Music (1965)
Julie Andrews as Maria gets kicked out of her post at an Austrian convent to become the governess to seven kids of a strict Naval officer widower played by Christopher Plummer. Directed by Robert Wise.
Mum Factor: Well she's not their mum but just watch the touching scene where Maria comforts the kids with her ‘favourite things’ - she’s all caring and protecting.
