For today’s #joyfuljan, I find joy in chick-flicks.
Once again sleep has eluded me and I found myself searching for something to watch in the wee hours of the night. I am a huge fan of Keira Knightley and Donald Sutherland so I thought I would give the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice a chance. I was definitely NOT disappointed! I fell madly in love with the scenes between Keira and Matthew Macfayden (an actor I hadn’t seen before). And I was pleasantly surprised to see Judi Dench playing Lady Catherine de Bourg. The settings were delightful and the acting superb.
As P&P came to an end, there were other movies given as suggestions and I settled upon Kate & Leopold. Meg Ryan has been a long-time favorite of mine and who can resist anything with Hugh Jackman in it? And again I was pleasantly surprised to see Liev Schrieber in it (Hugh and Liev are favorites from the X-Men movies!). This too was a delightful tale and I loved the chemistry between Meg and Hugh.
I am not always one for chick-flicks, usually preferring dramas, mysteries or science fiction, but last night, these two movies gave me hours of joy!
What gives you joy today? Let me know in the comments!
