The Holiday is a classic, cheesy, feel-good, holiday movie that gives you all the feels. Starring the lovable Jude Law (drooling), Cameron Diaz (everyone’s Angel, insert heart-eye emoji with angel hallo), Jack Black (a surprising but absolutely amazing casting choice), and Kate Winslet (…ROSE, THERE WAS ENOUGH ROOM ON THAT WOODEN MAKESHIFT RAFT… yes… I’m still bitter, but this movie may make up for it). The movie is centred around two down-in-the-dumps ladies who are in need of a much deserved break from their daily lives. Amanda, a work-obsessed Hollywood trailer maker who is emotionally unavailable, discovers her boyfriend is cheating on her with his secretary. Across the pond, delicate English journalist Iris is head-over-heels in love with a coworker who has played with her heart over and over again and has just announced he is getting married to one of their colleagues. The two ladies find themselves on a home-exchange vacation site and agree to switch houses for the holidays: Iris to Amanda’s California mansion and Amanda to Iris’s quaint country home in England.
Love Actually tells the story of relationships and the complexities of love through nine interwoven stories. Starring devilishly handsome Hugh Grant, the ever-so-lovely Kiera Knightly, the hilarious and loveable Colin Firth, and so many more, this star studded cast will have you laughing and crying from one scene to the next. From unrequited love, to cheating scandals, to the love between best friends and family members, to love lost and love found, this movie is the perfect holiday classic.
