Barry Jenkins, the director who brought us the Oscar-winning Moonlight, is not too proud to admit he loves watching Hugh Grant politely blabber his way to true love. Jenkins was on a January 3 flight when he spotted a woman nearby watching Notting Hill, the 1999 romantic comedy starring Grant and Julia Roberts. Hilariously, Jenkins began live tweeting the movie despite the fact he was watching over her shoulder and couldn't hear anything being said (he was listening to Rick Ross and DJ Shadow FYI).

Over an epic run of tweets, Jenkins reacted to Hugh Grant's "English Cat Game," the fact Julia Roberts is almost certainly out of Grant's league, and how a bookseller could afford a huge apartment in pricey west London. Check out the full thread below.
