Young Women, Marriage, and the Men They Drive Wild

The Other Boleyn Girl - (2008) Directed by Justin Chadwick

Starring Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Eric Bana

Father wants daughters to bed prince.

I enjoyed a few things about this movie, Natalie Portman, the subject, and the costumes. Out of the three I mentioned, the last one left the biggest impression. The wardrobe was really detailed and looked really good in the film, so was the lighting, many scenes looked as if Vermeer himself was commissioned as set designer.

I felt really bad for Mary, people say Scarlett is a bad actress but she's all right when in the right role, Ms. Johansson gave Mary an inexperienced vulnerability that worked really well on screen.

Take Her, She's Mine - (1963) Directed by Henry Koster

Starring James Stewart, Sandra Dee, Audrey Meadows,

Robert Morley

Father wants daughter away from all men, even princes.

Fun Comedy, Jimmy Stewart as a over-protective father, who by the way resembles Jimmy Stewart and constantly gets himself into questionable situations in the name of trying to look after his newly matriculated daughter. Not that it would've worked but I could imagine this film in the 80s or early 90s with Bill Cosby and Lisa Bonet.

Barefoot in the Park - (1967) Directed by Gene Saks

Starring Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, Charles Boyer,

Mildred Natwick

Princess marries prince but takes a moment to live happily ever after.
