About the Holiday
Amanda (Cameron Diaz) and Iris (Kate Winslet) are done with men! Amanda just found out that her boyfriend is cheating on her and Iris has a crush on Jasper, but he is getting married. They want to escape their lives for a while. They decide to exchange their houses and lives. Amanda goes to a small town in England and Iris is going to Los Angeles. But while they want to escape the men in their lives, new guys are entering their lives.
I love this movie a lot. It is the perfect movie to watch in winter and with Christmas. This movie is funny, romantic and inspiring. Iris is helping an old man, who is a star in Hollywood, with exercising so he can walk up the stage without any help.
Amanda meets Graham, the brother of Iris, and they are perfect for each other. After the death of his wife, he has a lot of one night stands. Amanda’s relationships never last long either.
Iris is also perfect for Miles, who is a friend of Amanda, they both falling for the wrong people. Iris is falling for Jasper who is going to marry someone else, but he is still playing games with her mind and let her think she is special. Miles finds out that his girlfriend is cheating on him.
They all grow as a person in this movie. Amanda is opening up, Graham is ready for a new serious relationship. Iris finally notices how toxic her relationship with Jasper is.
