Somewhere In Time-With a Room Full of Daughters and A Television

Updated on August 28, 2018

I have a house full of daughters always brought us together at the TV for an evening of romance movies. Living in a house with only daughters is a unique experience and I often felt sorry for my husband. He was always voted out on movie night, there were no bang bang shoot 'em off movies for him. He put up with it and always gave in to the wishes of this girls.

Somewhere in Time is one of those movies that hit home for us. We grew up in Michigan and since the movie was filmed on Mackinac Island located between the upper and lower pennisula. It was always one of our favorite vacation spot during the summer. We even had several opportunities to stay at the Grand Hotel where the movie was filmed. So for us it was our movie and every time we watch the movie we relived our stays at the hotel.

Christopher Reeves started in the movie and on one of our visits to the hotel we had the opportunity to visit the room where the movie was filmed. The shear elegance of the hotels makes you feel as if the characters of the movie actually stayed there. In fact our youngest was sure she saw them on the back lawn.

This movie soon became one of the standard we watched when we rented videos. I love the mystery of how the main character was transported through time and how in love he had become with Ms. Mckenna. This is still a favorite of ours and after all of those years my grown daughters and I always find time to watch Somewhere in Time when we all get together.

Spend a Weekend Watching Romance Movies

Always
Always

Considered by many to represent a low point in Steven Spielberg's career, 1990's Always did suggest something of a temporary drift in the director's sensibility. A remake of the classic Spencer Tracy film A Guy Named Joe, Always stars Richard Dreyfuss as a Forest Service pilot who takes great risks with his own life to douse wildfires from a plane. After promising his frightened fiancée (Holly Hunter) to keep his feet on the ground and go into teaching, Dreyfuss's character is killed during one last flight. But his spirit wanders restlessly, hopelessly attached to and possessive of Hunter, who can't see or hear him. Then the real conflict begins: a trainee pilot (Brad Johnson), a likable doofus, begins wooing a not-unappreciative Hunter--and it becomes Dreyfuss's heavenly mandate to accept, and even assist in, their budding romance.
