Notting Hill (1999) Film Review | 365 Day Film Challenge – Day 20

I absolutely fell head over heels in love with Notting Hill. Starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts as William Thacker, a man who works at a bookstore, and Anna Scott, a famous American actress respectively, the film’s two lead are believable and have chemistry. Rhys Ifans steal every scene he’s in, bringing a little extra humour to the film.

The story may not be totally original, but it’s still a charming, comforting film that will leave you with a smile on your face (and who can forget the iconic line “I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her”?).

Notting Hill is gorgeously shot, and I felt like I was in the beautiful English city of Notting Hill. Plus, Julia Roberts’ megawatt smile instantly elevates the beauty of any film she stars in. This is a charming, warm film that is guaranteed to make you happy (unless you have no soul or hate rom-coms). I adored my time spent with Notting Hill.

Verdict: 4/5
