Romantic Movie Scene Feature: “Dancing with You,” a Romantic Moment with First Daughter’s James and Samantha

April 26, 2017 2 Comments

I don’t know about you, but in my teen years, there are lots of memories associated with the films I saw. Why is this? I don’t really know, but I suspect it might partially be because I didn’t watch a great deal of movies growing up. One of the films I swooned over as a teenager is the sweet romance, First Daughter. This serves as inspiration to talk about a First Daughter romantic moment because we can never swoon too much, right?

But, wait! This is not only a boy-meets-girl romance that is sure to sweep you off your feet. No, this is above all, a story of surprising maturity about a mother and daughter (you all know the scene I’m talking about); a father and the bond he has with his little girl; a daughter and the gentle but genuine way she struggles to find her voice and spread her wings. It’s one of the best “teen” comedies I’ve seen, even to this day, because it uses a mature storytelling persona to tell its story rather than the gimmicks most opt for. It’s a piece of nostalgic magic that, for me, never grows tiresome. ♥

Comment all of your favorite (or not so favorite!) things about this movie.

Romantic Moment of the Week: First Daughter’s Samantha and James

THE FILM: First Daughter
THE PAIR: Samantha MacKenzie (Katie Holmes) and James (Marc Blucas)
THE MOMENT: “Dancing with You”

First Daughter is, for me, one of those nostalgic films. It’s a charming romantic-comedy that is so much more than its genre would have us believe. Yes, it’s a romance, but it’s also a coming-of-age story that looks beyond the limitations of its genre to grow into a relevant story of maturity. Consequently, it doesn’t hurt that its leading lady, Samantha, is a classy young woman modern cinema fails to introduce us to very often. Continue reading on Silver Petticoat →

    I've never seen this one. I don't know how I missed it, but obviously I need to watch it. :)

      It's beautiful, Tressa. In fact, either here or on Silver Petticoat, I really need to review it. Every time (it never fails) my mom and I watch it, we swoon. ;)
