The Holiday

Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Jack Black

There are two romances and two story lines in this film – two different women in different countries who trade places for a holiday. They have both had their hearts broken and need a getaway. The getaway involves each of them meeting some-one new. How can it work when the one they meet lives on the other side of the world?

Each woman becomes involved in a journey of self-discovery on their holidays. They also meet interesting people, form relationships, and discover how strong they are.

I like Kate and Jack much better than Cameron and Jude in this film. In fact, I find Cameron quite annoying in some scenes. There’s a gorgeous role played by Eli Wallach that will make you cry. And in the end, there’s happiness all round.

Not a bad flick, made bearable by Kate Winslet I reckon, still worth a look if you come across it, but wouldn’t bother renting it.
