Meet Iris and Amanda, two women who couldn't be more different - one lives in a cosy English cottage, the other in a swanky Hollywood estate - but who are alike in their mutual bad luck with men.
After bad bouts of man trouble just before the holidays, Amanda Woods (Cameron Diaz) and Iris Simpkins (Kate Winslet) are desperate for a change of scene. Traveling in opposite directions (Diaz to London, Winslet to Los Angeles), each finds herself alone in an unfamiliar town, but neither remains a stranger in her new surroundings for long.
Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet join an all-star cast that includes Jude Law, Jack Black, Eli Wallach, Ed Burns and Rufus Sewell in The Holiday, writer-director Nancy Meyers' latest take on the strange ways of love, and the high price of neglecting your own heart.
