Door Number 8 is home to a good old Christmas romcom, with some big name stars and unusual pairings.
Directed by Nancy Meyers (who also directed ‘What Women Want’), this film is a warm romance that you can lose yourself in for an afternoon. The story stems from the two main ladies of the movie, Amanda (Cameron Diaz) and Iris (Kate Winslet) who swap houses over Christmas in an attempt to find a new lease of life. Amanda ends up in the English countryside, while Iris finds herself in an L.A. mansion – both a world away from any of their creature comforts.
It’s a classically fun Christmas film, with as many clichés as you’d expect from a Rom-Com but that doesn’t make it any less entertaining. A definite feel good film that will leave you with a smile – isn’t being warm and fuzzy what Christmas is all about?
