"Notting Hill" - Richard Curtis

"Notting Hill" - Richard Curtis

Who hasn't ever dreamed of meeting a movie star, falling in love and discovering the ... more

feelings are mutual? Richard Curtis's Notting Hill
is a funny, enchanting, lighthearted take  on just
such a fairy-tale premise. Curtis's screenplay of
the film--starring Hugh Grant as an ordinary
British bookshop owner and Julia Roberts as the
world-famous American  actress who  waltzes into
his shop and his life--makes an effective and
enjoyable read, chock-full of the  snappy, witty
dialogue that made Curtis's Four Weddings and a
Funeral such a hit. Fans  of the film will be
pleased to relive such moments as Roberts and
Grant's first embarrassing meetings and her
appearance at a small dinner party for Grant's
sister, where she turns the  dynamic upside-down.
On the page, the story is charming if a bit slight
(it doesn't feature a rowdy  and riotous
supporting cast ā la Four Weddings), but as
wish-fulfilment and  romantic comedy, it's
irresistible and will leave a smile on your face
to rival that of our heroine. In  addition to the
finished script, the book includes scenes that
didn't make the final cut (great ones,  too--it's
too bad they won't be seen), loads of colour
stills from the movie, an engaging  introduction
by Curtis detailing the genesis of the film and an
affable if offbeat afterword by Hugh  Grant
himself.  --Mark Englehart
