Movies have always brought people together in some way. For my Mom and me, that was always the case. My mind is always on the next column and the three-year anniversary of her death was coming up. I started thinking “What can I do for this?” On my days off, I started running across a bunch of movies that we watched together and I decided to bring some movies back around that we liked. Maybe you might have liked them at one time or another. All of them are available on DVD currently. This one is for Mom and I hope some of these might be a few films people may like.
The American President - Mom always liked a good romantic comedy and she always thought Micheal Douglas was cute. Douglas plays President Andrew Shepherd. Being President is a tricky job when everything you do is watched by everyone you work with and the American People too. This couldn’t be more true when he meets Lobbyist Sydney Ellen Wade (Annette Benning). Sydney is a tough cookie and she will make sure she gets her point across when she is doing her job fighting for causes that are important to the Public. A chance meeting surprises her when the President walk into the room. She is embarrassed but Andrew likes what he sees. He decides to invite to a function at the White House and the ball starts rolling from there. Things go well at first but then others that are running for office decide to make Sydney a target to get into the White House. Will this make their romance even harder?
