Best film fathers

Add a list or tag with showdown:dad

Who’s your daddy? Which film father do you stan the hardest? Hot on the heels of 2017’s great dads (Lady Bird, Call Me by Your Name), this year has seen more complex patriarchs on screen, from A Quiet Place’s Lee and Leave No Trace’s Will to Ally’s dad Lorenzo in A Star is Born, and Eighth Grade’s solid papa, Mark. Never forgetting Paddington 2’s action hero and Chakrobatics aficionado, Henry ‘Bullseye’ Brown. And with Mary Poppins’ Michael all grown up with three children of his own, we want to finish 2018 by celebrating your top ten favorite screen dads of all time.
