Love Actually [WS] [DVD] [2003]

Hugh Grant heads up the ensemble cast of this charming romantic comedy from Richard Curtis, who took his first turn behind the camera after penning the scripts for such well-received films as Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, and Bridget Jones's Diary. Love Actually criss-crosses the love lives of several characters over the course of the Christmas holiday and makes its way to DVD with a widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. For Spanish- or French-speaking viewers, there are dubbed audio tracks and optional subtitles. Fans of the film can get a glimpse into the production process and set happening with a full-length audio commentary track by Curtis, Grant, and cast members Bill Nighy and Thomas Sangster. Additionally, there are deleted scenes introduced by Curtis, a feature covering the music on the film's soundtrack, and the video for Kelly Clarkson's "The Trouble With Love Is." A full-screen version with identical features is also available.

Synopsis

Love Actually
All of London is in love -- or longing to be -- in Four Weddings and a Funeral writer Richard Curtis' first directorial effort. Billed as "the ultimate romantic comedy," Love Actually involves more than a dozen main characters, each weaving his or her way into another's heart over the course of one particularly eventful Christmas. The seemingly perfect wedding of Juliet (Keira Knightley) and Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor) brings many of the principals together, including heartsick best man Mark (Andrew Lincoln), who harbors a very unrequited crush on Juliet. There's also recent widower Daniel (Liam Neeson), trying to help his lonely stepson Sam (Thomas Sangster) express his true feelings to a classmate. Across town, devoted working mother Karen (Emma Thompson) tries to rekindle the passion of her husband, Harry (Alan Rickman), who secretly pines for a young colleague of his. In the same office, the lonely Sarah (Laura Linney) not-so-secretly pines for a man just a few desks away (Rodrigo Santoro), who returns her affections but may not be able to dissuade her neuroses. Providing the unofficial soundtrack for all of the couples is an aging rocker (Bill Nighy) who just wants to cash in and get laid -- but even he might find a meaningful relationship in the most unlikely of places. A working print of Love Actually premiered at the 2003 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
