About the Show

First Daughter is a romantic comedy film released by 20th Century Fox in 2004.

It stars Katie Holmes as Samantha Mackenzie, a Presidential daughter who enrolls at a college and develops a relationship with another student at the college played by Marc Blucas.

The film follows Samantha as she is given a new sense of freedom during her time away from the White House, and the advantages and disadvantages of her college life and education.

It co-stars Michael Keaton as the President of the United States and Amerie Rogers as Samantha's roommate.

The film was directed by Forest Whitaker, written by Jessica Bendiger, Kate Kondell and Jerry O'Connell and produced by John Davis.

Whitaker likened First Daughter to a fairy tale, characterising it as "the story of a princess who leaves the 'castle' (the White House) to go out in the world to discover who and what she is".

The film languished in development hell for several years, and was further delayed even after its completion.

It was not a commercial success upon its eventual release, and reviews criticised its bland storyline, the cloying direction, and an unconvincing performance from Katie Holmes.
