The Holiday

Composite

So, I used to love this movie when I was a teenager. It’s double the romance, double the story and its Christmas; what could be better? Watching it now, it’s dropped down a few pegs on my awesome scale. The story is a bit corny and the dialogue a little too scripted. It also doesn’t completely match the characters to the actors. With that being said, it’s a cute movie. It has great actors and actresses (Jack Black, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz) and the story, itself, is fun and interesting.

Iris is a journalist who has spent the last three years in an one-sided relationship; Amanda is a L.A. movie big wig who’s boyfriend just cheated on her. The two women discover one another on a sort of AirBnB site and decide to switch homes. Iris travels to the states and Amanda travels to England near Surrey. The two aim to get away from their pain and men, but instead discover new beginnings that may lead them to a spark of new love.

It sounds like a Hallmark movie, but it’s very well done. The movie has a lot of side plots and character development that really helps it stand out. It’s helpful when you have an all-star cast that can make any role seem amazing. The two stories of Iris and Amanda also really help keep the story interesting.

I am an aspiring writer who has devoted the better part of my life to English. I decided to write reviews because every time I read a book (which is far less then it should be) or a good show (which is way more) I am just bursting with information that I want to relay to someone, anyone, because what I just saw or read was just so awesome. Please, enjoy! Disclaimer: I do not own nor am I associated with the related books, shows or movies or their consequent companies. This blog is for fun and information.
