Theater Thursday

This week for Theater Thursday I've decided to kick off the holiday season with While You Were Sleeping.
While You Were Sleeping stars Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman and takes place in Chicago, Illinois. Lucy (Bullock) works for the city's department of transportation, precisely the metro station.

One day at work she spots a beautiful man and becomes smitten with him named Peter. Everyday she looks for him and even though they never speak he brightens her day. Lucy doesn't have the best life, she has no family and very little friends, because of that she is asked to work on Christmas morning.

Lucy reluctantly agrees and goes to her token booth. To her surprise Peter comes through that morning but is involved in a bad incident which inevitably places her into his families life but not his. 

This movie obviously takes place during the holiday season. It spans from Christmas to New Years. I love watching this movie anytime of the year. It always makes me laugh and smile and get in a Christmas mood. If you haven't seen it then you're surely missing out. Give it a try...even if you're not a fan of holiday movies this is definitely a goodie.

I remember this being the first "adult" type movie I ever saw in the theaters. I must have been in like 4th grade or so, and felt so mature by being able to watch it
