Hugh Grant plays William Thacker, the l- owner of a small bookstore in
London‟s Notting Hill (described as “a small village in the middle of a city”). He‟s an
average Joe – When he‟s not working, he spends time with his friends and his wacky
Welsh 2- flatmate, but has no romantic life to speak of. One day, however, the bedrock
of his existence shifts when Anna Scott (Julia Roberts), the most famous 3- actress in
the world, walks through the door to his little 4- shop. Anna is in London to publicize a
new film. Later, William literally runs into her in the street, 5- spilling orange juice all
over her. 6- Embarrassed, he invites her to his place to clean up. Much to his surprise,
she accepts his 7- offer and, after changing outfits, she gives him a lingering 8- kiss on
the lips. William is immediately smitten and so, apparently, is Anna. Thus begins a 9-
tempestuous relationship that asks whether a star can live happily ever after with
someone who has never had his face in the 10- papers.
8) Choose one of the options below and write a text of about 100 words.
a) Sum up the story of the film.
b) Choose one character and write about him/her (you can choose more than one).
Spike is Wil‟sflat mate and is a very funny character. He is Welsh and has this
I-don‟t-give-a-shit kind of behavior mixed with I-am-a-moron look. He dresses and
talks no sense. It seems like he lives in another dimension, on his own world. Physically
he is tall, white skin, blonde and spike hair. Spike is naive and one day when Anna is
hiding on their flat he mentions in the pub that she is there and causes a lot damage
between William and Anna.
