I recently watched all of Lion-- it's a beautiful and intense (sometimes disturbing) movie that stays with one for days. I found the relationships in it to be very complex. I mean, his adoptive mother seems a little codependent. He struggles to have real intimacy with his girlfriend. His brother can never really heal from childhood trauma. His birth mother is amazing though. Have you read interviews about his birth mother's perspective? ...anyway, what made you decide to put it on the list?
Have you ever seen the mmovie "Our Souls at Night"? I watched it recently and it's kind of fascinating to me, the way the female protagonist just asks for what she wants, and they stumble through their awkwardnesses, and forgive each other's flaws.
'The Waltons' TV series (my mum has all the dvd's), a guilty pleasure:) As this show was somewhat based on real life events I think it gives it an air of credence. It often touched upon the lives of those around them who had less secure family support and the ensuing difficulties thereof. I loved the good-neigbourliness and how it illustrates 'it takes a village to raise a child'. Ofttimes genuine community support like this can make all the difference when parents/caregivers are distracted or absent.

I just finished watching "The Last Man on Earth" on Hulu. It's a bizarre spectacle and kind of gross (I mean every episode purposely has something gross about it), but every episode ends on a cliffhanger so we ended up bingewatching it.... Anyway, as I watched, it occurred to me that the show is a LOT about a protagonist negotiating his insecure attachment style both in romance and with his brother. Some people here may find it interesting.
