DVD Diva: Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant in Four Weddings and  a Funeral, from wikipedia.orgBest known for his work in romantic comedies, Hugh Grant is always enjoyable to watch. Here is a sampling of his earlier films:

Maurice is based on an E.M. Forster story about two Edwardian-era Cambridge graduates that fall in love, but must abide by British society's strict norms regarding homosexuality.

The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain is the story of a young English cartographer who must tell a Welsh village that their mountain is only a hill.

In Sense and Sensibility, which also stars Emma Thompson, the Dashwood sisters find their chances at marriage seemingly doomed by their family's sudden loss of fortune.

Four Weddings and a Funeral is a romantic comedy about a young man who meets the girl of his dreams at a friend's wedding. However, the timing is wrong, and it takes three more weddings and a funeral before the two finally connect.

In 2002, Hugh Grant worked with Woody Allen in Small Time Crooks, the story of a loser crook and his wife who strike it rich when a bank job gets botched.
