As my thoughts turn to all things British, and I've been sorting out all my closets including the DVD drawers - I thought I'd list my favorite movies about London. If you have a favorite and it's not listed here - please tell me about it...
Pride & Prejudice BBC - Colin Firth - 'nuff said. I love this mini-series so much - the language, the acting, the scenery, it's all just perfect. I could watch this over and over without being bored. anything Jane Austen is usually on my list.
Sliding Doors. I love Gwyneth Paltrow - as you'll see her movies pop up a bit here. I'm not sure why I love this movie so much - I think London is a great secondary character and I love John Hannah - he's just so charming in this movie.
Love Actually. I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy and this one has it all.
The Holiday - Jude Law - of whom I am not really a fan, stole my heart in this one.
Shakespeare in Love - who doesn't love Shakespeare? and Gwyneth?
Emma - this has to be at the very top of my list! Again, Gwyneth and Jane.
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels/Snatch - Guy Ritchie at his finest! I think both are worth owning.
Bridget Jones - I can't really explain this - but I loved it when it came out 10 years or so ago!
A Man for All Seasons - was in St. Thomas Moore's cell at the Tower of London a few years ago - it was fascinating. Love this movie and Paul Scofield was an inspiration.
Casino Royale - the Daniel Craig was amazing and they filmed in the Bahamas so I love it a tad extra.
Chariots of Fire - one of the more inspiring films ever made.
I could go on and on and will probably amend soon! Please let me know if I missed any treasures...
