Hi, Yes, serendipity closely means an windfall, or a sudden strike of fortune. I have seen this movie you mentioned here. It was indeed, a wonderful movie starred by John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. Glad to know that you liked it too. I didn't know it was so hard to translate the word. I knew the meaning by the word itself so never actually cared to translate it into my language. I seldom used this word in my own writing. Thanks God bless you
