List: Top 3 Father-Daughter Movies
This week on Episode 283 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by Boots Riley’s wild Leave No Trace, we decided to talk about our favorite father-daughter movies. 2018 has been a very rich year for these kinds of films, including Leave No Trace, Hearts Beat Loud and Eighth Grade. Of course, though, this relationship we’ve seen on screen many times before, and man-o-man have there been some great depictions of this over the years. So this was a lot of fun, especially when Ryan brought up a certain film from 2014. On that note, what movies would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:
(Note: Please keep in mind that we each had different criteria for our selections)
1) Father of the Bride (1950)
2) Stories We Tell
1) To Kill a Mockingbird
2) Toni Erdmann
3) Father of the Bride (1991)
2) The Descendants
3) Lady Bird
