Whenever I find myself in stressful situations, I turn to the delightful film that is Bridget Jones's Diary. It's got Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth, for goodness' sake! What more could you want?
Another modern-day adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, Pride and Prejudice, Bridget Jones is a under appreciated publicist at a publishing company who catches the attention of her caddish boss, Daniel Cleaver (played by Hugh Grant) and cold yet brilliant Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). Bridget is a hot mess and yet she is every woman. From her quick witticisms, her fear of dying alone (and subsequently eaten by dogs), and her need to wear belly flattening "granny panties" to a party. She is another one of our sisters, just trying to make it through life, struggling to get her act together. I think the reason I love watching this film over and over again is because of how relatable yet timeless her struggles are. Who hasn't ended up on the wrong side of a relationship? Who hasn't had a job they didn't like? Who hasn't gone to their refrigerator to find something to eat only to find all they have is some cheese and a bottle of wine (or is that just me and Bridget?)
If you're a young professional woman (or even about to become a young professional woman), I highly recommend this movie for a girls night. A definite must-watch!
