Jesus is depicted as being close to his mother in the 1999 movie Jesus.

This film describes the life of Jesus in a humanized way.  The movie describes Jesus as feeling lost and depressed after his stepfather Joseph dies.  He had been a carpenter with Joseph, who loved him like a son.  He was trying to decide what to do with his life, when his mother explained that he had a Calling.

Mary describes how Jesus was born, including her virgin immaculate conception and the visit of the angel telling her what was happening.  She also tells Jesus of the visitors who came to see him at his birth.  Jesus realizes that he does have a Calling, and he needs to spread his religion.
