Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant forge memorable chemistry in this charmer about two very different people--William, an unassuming bookstore owner in London's Notting Hill section, and Anna, a Hollywood actress--who, against the odds, fall in love. After Anna wanders into William's shop while filming on location in London, the two share an instant attraction and find themselves attempting to forge a normal relationship despite Anna's megawatt star power. Screenwriter Richard Curtis (FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL) has crafted a traditional romantic comedy that is surprisingly frank in its depiction of the lives of the rich and famous and the price they pay for success.
"...This role gives Ms. Roberts a lovely opportunity to poke fun at her own situation..." -- Janet Maslin , (New York Times)
"...NOTTING HILL doesn't just refresh. It's deadpan wit, ingenious fairy-tale premise and superbly accomplished cast will leave you feeling positively oxygenated..." -- Susan Wloszczyna , (USA Today)
"...NOTTING HILL is a smartly cast and consistently amusing romantic comedy..." -- Kenneth Turan , (Los Angeles Times)
"...The movie is bright, the dialogue has wit and intelligence, and Roberts and Grant are very easy to like..." -- Roger Ebert , (Chicago Sun-Times)
4 stars out of 5 -- "A warm, romantic film for a rainy day, as Grant and Roberts play mismatched lovers....Their star quality here never waivers." -- David Richardson , (Total Film)
