Why did we fall in love with the movie, Notting Hill? It’s about a young man living in Notting Hill, a town in England, which apparently is as inconspicuous as a small English town can get. He keeps a regular ordinary day running his bookshop, until one day, he encounters Anna, a Hollywood celebrity from the U.S. They fall in love, got separated because of differences that are worlds apart, but in the end, they get back in each other’s arms. Can something be cheesier than that? Maybe none, but we like the feeling of love putting two persons of different backgrounds as varied as an apple is to orange. We aspire to the purity of love, that day when we, too, will be slipping a Suna Bros. ring in our loved one’s finger without prejudice to her background.
Suna Bros. is available at Shreve & Co. in Portland, Oregon.
