You know what I mean, the go to film when you're ill and you want to escape from the world and lose yourself in someone else's life. I've come down with a cold and I'm feeling dreadful. Since there's very little I can do other than dose up with vitamins and echinacea, I'm just waiting for it to go away.
My go to film has to be The Lake House, with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock.I watched it about four years ago when I was ill and now it's the film I get out when I'm feeling poorly and want to feel cosy and cheered up. If you haven't seen it, then I really recommend it, it's a proper girlie romance, perfect for cuddling up under a blanket with a hot chocolate and a box of tissues. I won't spoil the end; but put it this way I hate sad films and would never recommend one!
