Tonight airs «Notting Hill» (on Sky Cinema Romance at 21), a romantic comedy directed by Roger Michell with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant. The actress plays Anna Scott, Hollywood star in London to present her latest science fiction film. One day, to escape the photographers, she takes refuge in a modest bookstore in the Notting Hill neighborhood run by William Thacker (Hugh Grant), a young man who is as kind as he is clumsy. Later the two collide in the street and Anna gets orange juice on her dress. William invites her to her house to clean up and Anna accepts. Soon love is born between the two and, despite the social distance and the siege of the paparazzi, the happy ending triumphs in the end. Notting Hill is a funny film, full of humor and brilliant gimmicks. Although the plot is quite obvious, the two protagonists are in a state of grace: Julia Roberts knows how to make fun of herself and Hollywood, while Hugh Grant best re-proposes the «handsome and clumsy» character already seen in «Four Weddings and a Funeral ». The film is a great success at the box office. Costing $42 million, it grossed $363, making it the highest-grossing British film at the time. While waiting for the airing, here are 10 things you may not know.
