The Holiday - Festive Romantic Fun

This is now one of my festive favourites when it comes to escapist holiday viewing. The romance, the settings, the cast. The running away....

Ok, I admit, from the moment I saw the trailer I was smitten with the cast--I  Rufus Sewell--but, Jack Black? As a romantic partner for Kate Winslet!? Hmmm...

However, he totally won me over with his portrayal of a very sweet, clever, and down-to-earth musical composer guy, Miles. Hey Jack, why don't we see more of this kind of casting for you?

Also loved Eli Wallach as the aged, forgotten Hollywood writer, Arthur.
