The Holiday is one of my favorite Christmas movies.
Iris, played by Kate Winslet, works for a newspaper in London. She has been in love with Jaspar Bloom for years and when she finds out that he is engaged she is heartbroken.
Amanda, played by Cameron Diaz, is a movie trailer maker in Los Angeles. She breaks up with her boyfriend and is looking for a change.
They find each other online and agree to swap houses for the holidays.
We go back and forth between the two girls and what they do and learn in their new situations.
Iris is so excited when she shows up at Amanda's mansion.
Amanda, however, is less than thrilled with the small cozy cottage in England.
I LOVE that cottage. I was so sad when I learned that it was built for the movie. I really wanted to stay in it!
This movie is so great.
It is funny, heartwarming, sad, and really festive.
I dare you not to fall in love with Jude Law after watching this!
And those children. They are so adorable.
And I can't imagine anyone watching it and not rooting like crazy for Kate Winslet's character to find her happiness.
I fully recommend this movie. It is PG-13. It is a really great film.
