Love and Other Disasters

"Director Alek Keshishian unspools a charming tale that finds a young American (Brittany Murphy) attempting to play matchmaker for friends and co-workers -- with mixed results -- while interning at a major British fashion magazine. Problem is, she's so busy hooking up everyone else that she can't see her ideal match right under her nose. The supporting cast of characters includes Matthew Rhys, Santiago Cabrera and Catherine Tate." courtesy of netflix
I LOVED this movie, I watched it on my laptop on the watch instantly feature from netflix (which used to just be bad and old movies but now it has a really good selection) but Brittany Murphy (RIP) was the most endearing character, she was like a mix of Edie Sedgwick and Audrey Hepburn and theres a good chunk of the movie of them watching 'Breakfast at Tiffanys' and relating it to real life. it's just a really fun, feel-good movie they have fun with it too. theres a scene where Jacks (Murphy) says "Well I don't want to pretend that life is a movie and I'm spilling my guts out to a complete stranger while violin music plays" and the whole time violin music is playing until she says "violin music plays" her character was raised in england and in america (the whole movie is shot in london) so her accent goes in and out and its kind of cute. Brittany Murphy did a great job in the movie though, she looked beautiful in it I think it had to have been way before she started any kind of drugs
