Keris Stainton joins us today during her month long celebration of the publication of Jessie Hearts New York. She is here to tell us about her favourite films set in New York.
At the back of Jessie Hearts NYC are a few pages of lists of my favourite New York-y things. I thought I'd expand on the film list since I tried to keep it short and sweet in the book!
When Harry Met Sally
The first time I saw this film, I didn't like it at all. The second time I saw it I really liked it. And now it's my favourite film of all time. Oddly enough, that's sort of how things go for Harry and Sally too. It's funny, sweet, charming and New York looks amazing. It's also one of the few romcoms that men seem to enjoy just as much as women.
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Oh Michael Cera, how I love you. If he'd been around when I was a teen (or if I was 25 years younger), I'd be obsessed. And in Nick & Norah he co-stars with Kat Dennings who I would've wanted to be (still wouldn't mind, actually, she's fabulous). I loved the book and I actually watched the film two nights in a row. Ace.
