Roger Michell United Kingdom, 1999

msmichel's rating of the film Notting Hill

'I'm also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.' That line alone makes this one of the great rom-coms that one will find great pleasure in if one surrenders to its charms. Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant are both wonderful throughout with a lovely group of supporting characters. Easy to find fault with, but also very easy to love.
