Hello and Good Evening, I thought this movie, \"The Holiday\" was fantastic! Not only did it make me laugh and smile, it completely overwelmed me in a good way. So much that I watch it over and bought the DVD. It helped me when I was down and needed a little verve and vitality that lets face it a lot of us need. All of the all star cast was outstanding and the characters were all believable and realistic. Thank you for allowing a movie to transcend and surpass the everyday lifestyle of two bright, successful, strong and funny women who embraced the chance to change their latitude and longitude and find exactly what they were looking for. Finding new friends, companions, cultures, and what better,... themselves. Thank you again. Brava.
Ideal to watch at Christmas time. Cuddle up with a blanket,a warm beverage, and the television set to play 'The Holiday'. Enjoy. :)
