As WE head into the holiday season, it’s time to break out the festive films. With a star studded cast, The Holiday is the perfect Christmas flick. Following Iris (Kate Winslet) and Amanda (Cameron Diaz) who swap houses at Christmas. They both go with intentions of a relaxing holiday but come out with complicated love stories.

The Holiday is the perfect festive romantic comedy. It’s feel-good and a light watch so perfect for a cosy family viewing. The storyline is simple yet enjoyable with endearing love stories and playful comedy.

The love interests Graham (Jude Law) and Miles (Jack Black) are both incredibly charming, the relationships that come around are beautiful and feel natural.

Although the plot isn’t hugely original, it’s still a fun watch. The two storylines flow together perfectly and it’s wonderful to watch as they intertwine. It’s a beautiful story full of warmth and development.

The locations are gorgeous, showing off Surrey and California, and the film is humorous throughout with some more emotional moments which adds depth. Black’s character is the perfect comic relief during the movie and Diaz’s clumsy persona is hilariously adorable.

As Christmas comes closer, this is the perfect film to watch.
