Time has flown and it has been five months since I’ve come back from London, crazy! To try to miss less this incredible city, on today’s video I’ve decided to make a list with 5 films that are set in London. So if you are in a similar situation as me, you can revisit the city or if you’ve never been in London before, you can travel through these films.
Notting Hill (1999, Roger Michell)
Every men’s dreams come true for William Thacker (Hugh Grant), an unsuccessful Notting Hill bookstore owner, when Anna Scott (Julia Roberts), the world’s most beautiful woman and best-liked actress, enters his shop. A little later, William runs into her again – this time spilling orange juice all over her. Eventually, Anna and William get to know each other better over the months, but being together with the world’s most wanted woman is not easy. Neither around your closest friends nor in front of the all-devouring press.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007, Tim Burton)
In the Victorian London, the barber Benjamin Barker (Johnny Depp) is married to the Lucy (Laura Michelle Kelly) and they have a lovely child, Johanna. The beauty of Lucy attracts the attention of the corrupt Judge Turpin (Alan Rickman), who falsely accuses the barber of a crime that he didn’t commit and abuses Lucy later after gaining her custody. After fifteen years in exile, Benjamin returns to London under the new identity of Sweeney Todd, seeking revenge against Turpin. He meets the widow Mrs Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter) who is the owner of a meat pie shop. She tells him that Lucy swallowed arsenic many years ago, and Turpin assigned himself tutor of Johanna. He opens a barber shop above her store, initiating a crime rampage against those who made him suffer.
Closer (2004, Mike Nichols)
Smart-but-ineffectual journalist Dan (Jude Law) “We use euphemisms!” cannot decide between his girlfriend, loving-but-clingy waitress Alice (Natalie Portman), or his lover cold-but-intellectual photographer Anna (Julia Roberts); herself indecisive between Dan and honest-but-thuggish “You’re bloody gorgeous!” doctor Larry (Clive Owen).
Love Actually (2003, Richard Curtis)
Follows the lives of eight very different couples dealing with love in various interrelated tales. All set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England.
About Time (2013, Richard Curtis)
The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim’s father (Bill Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) can’t change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life. So he decides to make his world a better place… by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think. Moving from the Cornwall coast to London to train as a lawyer, Tim finally meets the beautiful but insecure Mary (Rachel McAdams). They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means he’s never met her at all. So they meet for the first time again and again.
A had a super nostalgic time watching these films and I want to go back to London soon!
I hope you have enjoyed, bye bye.
