Twenty years have passed since Renèe Zellweger’s movie “Bridget Jones’ Diary” was first released in theaters at Olympus, Hollywood. The power of this romantic comedy is absolutely unique in that it attracts a contemporary heroine who aims to accept and improve herself without distorting herself. This is why it may still be so important in twenty years.
Unbelievable, but they have passed 20 years Since one of the films changed once and for all, the idea of a romantic comedy appeared in the cinema, namelyBridget Jones’ diary“According to Helen Fielding’s novel of the same name, starring in the incredible Renèe Zellweger, This movie became one of the most popular movies by the public, in fact, there are two other chapters afterwards.
