You've Got Mail

Ah, You’ve Got Mail. A classic rom-com and one of my personal favorites. It’s so dated with it’s AOL dial-up tones and VCRs but I love that kind of stuff. I think that it’s pointless to try and make something “timeless” and forego making modern references. It is exactly those references to technology and culture in a book that gives a certain personality and awareness. But besides that, You’ve Got Mail is a quirky and enchanting film that makes me want to snuggle up and read Pride and Prejudice. I don’t know what it is about modern interpretations of classics, I’m like a moth to a flame. But let’s be honest, Meg Ryan (aka Kathleen Kelly) is no Elizabeth Bennet – not enough fire but completely enjoyable to watch her awkwardness.

Just a friendly reminder to never judge a book by its cover, or person for that matter. Sound off in the comments if you have seen and loved this nineties gem!
