Plot Summary

In Nancy Meyers' The Holiday, a romantic comedy from the director of Something's Gotta Give and What Women Want, two women trade homes only to find that a change of address can change their lives. Iris (Winslet) is in love with a man who is about to marry another woman. Across the globe, Amanda (Diaz), realizes the man she lives with has been unfaithful. Two women who have never met and live 6000 miles apart, find themselves in the exact same place. They meet online at a home exchange website and impulsively switch homes for the holiday. Iris moves into Amanda's L.A. house in sunny California as Amanda arrives in the snow covered English countryside. Shortly after arriving at their destinations, both women find the last thing either wants or expects: a new romance. Amanda is charmed by Iris' handsome brother Graham (Law) and Iris, with inspiration provided by legendary screenwriter Arthur (Wallach), mends her heart when she meets film composer Miles (Black).

Totally underrated!!

This movie is one of my absolute favorites!! I have no idea why it received such low ratings from critics. Seriously, no clue. The cast is perfect and I just love Kate Winslet and Jack Black together. They have this great, quirky chemistry that just keeps you constantly smiling. I also love Jude Law's role in this film... so charming and sincere. Everything from set design to wardrobe is crisp, clean, and so refreshing which I love about Nancy Meyers' work. Not to mention, Hans Zimmer is the composer for the soundtrack and it is truly superb! I am a huge fan of Hans and this is some of his best work yet! All of this said, The Holiday is an amazing, lighthearted film that will leave you with so much joy inside of your heart... and who does not like having a heart full of joy? :)
