I'm working on a blog entry about my favorite Christmas movies, but today we watched Love Actually, and I decided that the wonderful film deserves it's own entry.
Have you seen this movie? If not, just go to Amazon right now and order it.
While we usually try to watch this every Christmas, it's one of those movies you can put on any time, and guaranteed, you will feel better.
It's not shlocky, its just warm, engaging, funny, bittersweet, emotional, and very very real.
Can you tell I love this film?
The cast is truly outstanding, including Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, Allan Rickman, Emma Thompson, Bill Nighy, Liam Neeson, Keira Knightly, Laura Linney and an astounding performance by a young man named Thomas Sangster.
The music in this film is also perfect, a blend of vocals and instrumentals that create the perfect ambiance for the intertwining stories.
I wish I could describe it better, but suffice it to say that if you want a wonderful holiday film, this is it.
