Cinematic Single Dads

While some film fathers differ, Wink, who is raising his daughter amidst a giant flood, deals out tough love and hard lessons.  But he still has one thing in common with all of the great movie pops named below, he loves his daughter. Take a look at some of movie history’s best-loved single dads.

What is the most amazing thing about this story, about struggling salesman Chris Gardner who loses his job, his wife and all of his assets and becomes determined to find a job to support him and his son, Christopher? It’s based on a true story.

Widower Marlin, a clownfish, is unwaveringly devoted to his son, Nemo. So when Nemo gets scooped up from the ocean by a scuba diver and dropped off in dentist’s aquarium in Australia, Marlin will stop at nothing to get him back.

Among this collection of Christmastime love stories, who knew the most touching would be between Daniel, a widower, and his stepson, Sam? When Sam confesses his deep feeling for classmate Joanna, Daniel makes sure Sam has an opportunity to confess his feelings, before Joanna is off to America forever.


Graham Simpkins, The Holiday

This dashing Brit, a widowed father of two little girls, has built his life around his daughters. He is always thinking of their happiness and has no problem building a magical indoor fort from sheets and pillows or adorably playing “Mr. Napkin Head.”

Sam Baldwin, Sleepless in Seattle

Sam may not believe that Annie—a woman his son Jonah wants to fix him up with—is the one for him, but when Jonah sneaks off to Manhattan to meet her, Sam moves heaven and earth to get to him. Their bond in the film is completely heart-warming.

  1. The Pursuit of Happiness is one of my favorite movies. It's heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. And I'm a huge fan of Will Smith. :)
