SYNOPSIS: Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Richard Curtis (About Time, Bridget Jones’s Diary and Notting Hill), comes Love Actually, the unforgettable holiday classic that has had audiences laughing, crying and hugging since it first premiered to U.S. audiences in 2003. Love, the fire that makes the world go round, is causing chaos for all. The lives and loves of these eight couples collide, mingle and climax again and again with romantic, hilarious and bittersweet consequences for anyone lucky (or unlucky) enough to be under love’s spell. The film’s hilariously unpredictable plot examines how love inspires experiences that are alternately exciting, unexpected and unequalled. This “star-studded, multi-plotlined movie” has become “one of the great Christmas movies” of all time (Entertainment Weekly).
