Saw The Holiday while I was on vacation. Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet are leading lives of romantic desperation in LA and England respectively. They meet on a Home Exchange site and decide to swap houses for their Christmas vacations. It was a cute movie, but nothing special. I must admit I really did enjoy Winslet’s scenes with Eli Wallach. Wallach plays a Billy Wilder-like elderly screenwriter who she befriends.
Also got to see a play in New York. It was…wait for it…Evil Dead: The Musical. Great fun, lots of good songs, a leading man who really does look like Bruce Campbell, and loads of fake blood (they even have several rows designated as the “splatter zone”).
