Synopsis:
Meet Iris (Kate Winslet) and Amanda (Cameron Diaz), two women who couldn't be more different - one lives in a cosy English cottage, the other in a swanky Hollywood estate - but who are alike in their mutual bad luck with men. In desperate need of an escape, they meet online and impulsively switch homes. Both find the last thing either wants or expects - a new romance - and discover that a change of address really can change your life.

Lovely romantic comedy - The Holiday review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
25/04/2007

I really loved this flm, and so did my husband. It revolves around Iris, a journalist who lives in Surry, and Amanda, who owns a company in LA which makes movie trailers. Both are competent, verging on workaholic, and both have unhappy love lives. Iris's story is all about the unrequited love she has for her colleague, played caddishly by Rufus Sewell and in the same vein as Bridget Jones's Daniel Cleaver. Amanda's partner has cheated on her as she is always working and he feels neglected. They meet on the internet and exchange homes for 2 weeks to get away from their current lives. Amanda promptly meets Iris's brother who seems like a drunken playboy/ladies man at first but all is not as it seems! Iris gets involved in the local community and meets a cute, funny colleague of Amanda's. The beauty of this film is the adorable characters, who you just want nice things to happen to. It's gently funny too and a real feel-good movie.

Lovely story, funny, with some convenient romance thrown in. Not terribly believable but who cares? It was fun to watch!
