“The Holiday” quotes(2006)
Plot – Amanda Woods lives in Los Angeles and has a movie trailers' production company. Iris Simpkins is a British journalist who writes the popular wedding column for the Daily Telegraph newspaper. Despite not knowing each other, the two women have one thing in common: both have been disappointed by their love stories. Taking advantage of the Christmas holidays, both decide to escape from the usual routine and they get in touch through a website that offers home exchanges. Amanda therefore leaves for England to spend two weeks in a romantic English cottage nestled in the snow, just outside London, while Iris crosses the ocean to spend two weeks under the California sun. The different environment and meeting new people will give each of the two women the opportunity to rediscover the joys of love.
