Comedy, Romance |..

The Holiday is a romantic comedy film written, produced and directed by Nancy Meyers. Co-produced by Bruce A. Block, it was filmed in both California and England, and stars Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz as Iris and Amanda, two lovelorn women from opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean, who arrange a home exchange to escape heartbreak during the Christmas and holiday season. Jude Law and Jack Black were cast as the film’s leading men Graham and Miles, with Eli Wallach, Shannyn Sossamon, Edward Burns and Rufus Sewell playing key supporting roles.

The Holiday premiered in New York City on November 29, 2006, before it was theatrically released in the United Kingdom and United States on December 8, 2006. The film was distributed by Columbia Pictures in North America and by Universal Pictures overseas. It grossed over $205 million worldwide against a budget of $85 million. The film received mixed reviews, with critics praising its visual aesthetic design and the cast’s performances, though regarded the plot as predictable.

Iris Simpkins, a society columnist for The Daily Telegraph in London, still loves her ex-boyfriend, Jasper Bloom, despite the fact that he cheated on her and is emotionally needy. She is devastated to find out he is engaged and decides to get away for the holidays.

Amanda Woods, a movie trailer producer in Los Angeles, breaks up with her film composer boyfriend, Ethan, after he admits to cheating on her. She comes across Iris’ listing of her cottage on a home swap website and messages her. They agree to switch houses for two weeks starting the next day.
