A Wonderful Holiday Film

Sick and tired of watching It's A Wonderful Life? try this then as a v v suitable replacement! Julie Andrews and James Garner are very well matched in this delightful and sometimes bittersweet film about two people who become stranded in a snowbound cottage for"One Special Night" as they themselves put it.

Julie Andrews gives an Oscar worthy performance as Catherine and same with James Garner as Robert, two people who find love, without really looking for it as two recently widowers....

Not wanting to spoil this film for those who have not seen it, I can just say in closing that if you do not cry at least once during this film, you do not deserve to call yourself a human being...
