There are literally thousands of films this could apply to. I suggest you make more concrete requirements (or a series of requirements) - a time period, like the 21st Century, a particular rating and/or number of votes, a DIFFERENT question than just "the best"... Get creative man!

Several of your options have "comedy" listed as their primary genre. If you're going to call it dramas, you could stick to those with comedy not listed first.  Or you could change the suggestion to "dramedy"...

Perhaps it's better to find another word as not all the films would probably be described as dramedies. 'Stories' or 'Pieces', perhaps.

The list is edited and only the titles with the rating 7.0 or more are in the list now.

Some are definitely comedies, you should stick to dramas and there was a huge streak of family dramas in the late 70's and early 80's: Kramer vs. Kramer, Ordinary People, Irreconciliable Differences, Terms of Endearment etc.

Carnage and Revolutionary Road are about dysfunctional couples, the perspective of children is never given so we can't really say these movie cover the problems of ALL the family.
