It’s day 18 of our very own special Christmas Movie Advent Calendar, the Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown. Join with us as we continue to countdown to Christmas with a new movie to watch each day as the days get ever closer to the big day. All films are availble via various streaming and terrestrial TV services.
Day 18 – Love Actually (NOWTV)
Love Actually follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England.
You either love Love Actually or you don’t. Over the years the Richard Curtis movies such as Four Weddings and About Time have ended up creating their own sort of movie genre and Love Acyually is one of the big ones. If you love it (And why ever not? With a cast boasting Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson, Colin Firth, Keira Knightley, Martin Freeman, Rowan Atkinson, Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, Billy Bob Thornton, The Walking Deads Andrew Lincoln, Chiwetel Ejiofor, the irreprecible Bill Nighy and even Ant and Dec its packed to the brim with talent for beginners) then this tale of eight mini stories of love, lust, deception, pain, longing but ultimately love triumphing over all set at Christmas possibly eclipses Four Weddings and Notting Hill as Curtis best movie.
Anyway love it or not Love Actually is your Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown choice for today. Join us tomorrow for another movie to help build that Christmas spirit!
If you’re behind on the countdown you can catch up via the links below the poster. Enjoy.
