Christmas Holiday Edition
I love Christmas and movies so this is a great combination for me! For the rest of this month, my movies will be holiday movies! This week's featured movie is a Sandra Bullock classic, While You Were Sleeping
Sandra Bullock stars as Lucy, a single Chicago girl who works for the public transportation system as a token booth worker at the train station. It's during this time that she sees and meets Peter. Peter (Peter Gallagher) is a stylish, businessman who breezes through the station every morning saying hello and smiling at Lucy. Over time Lucy draws an interest in Peter but can't figure out how to start a conversation with him. She's attracted to him and wants to date him but can't figure out how to get that into a conversation. 

On Christmas Day when Lucy gets stuck working, Peter is the only passenger coming through. A few guys at the station start hassling him and knocks him onto the tracks rendering him unconscious. Lucy notices this rushes to his aid. When she gets to the hospital there is some confusion and she's introduced to Peter's family as his fiance. Much to her disbelief, Peter's family believes it because they haven't seen him in awhile. Lucy gets scared and doesn't know what to say. 

There's only one major problem... Jack (Bill Pullman). Jack is Peter's brother and while Peter remains in a como, Jack and Lucy begin hanging out. They start to fall for each other but Jack believes that Lucy is his brothers fiance and Lucy doesn't know how to tell them all the truth without upsetting them. Once Peter wakes up it goes crazy from there!
