If you have 97 minutes free between Christmas shopping, seeing family and opening presents, you should definitely use the time to watch our 18th day’s film advent, Bridget Jones’ Diary.
Starring huge names such as Hugh Grant, Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth, this is an absolute must-see film over the Christmas period, and if you haven’t seen it yet, watch it right now!
Bridget Jones is the average 32 year old woman with an average life, an average job, and an average crush on her boss. Like us all, she decides to make a New Year’s Resolution to take control of her life, starting by keeping a diary of her year in which she tells the complete truth.
But she begins an affair with her charmingly vulgar boss, Daniel Cleaver, complicating her year even more. When she falls head-over-heels, she finds that her feelings aren’t shared by him upon his engagement to another woman.
But Bridget isn’t left alone; she has the gorgeous Mark Darcy after her. Despite her repulsion towards him, she doesn’t see the man Mark truly is until she realises the truth about her boss.
Thrown into the mix are Bridget’s eccentric friends and her tendency to reveal EVERYTHING that’s on her mind, which doesn’t make her resolution any easier to keep.
Not only is this an amazingly made film, but it’s a fantastic read as well.
Merry Christmas everyone!
