Love Actually (2003) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
How do you rate a ‘great’ film?  Is it one that is made by a great director, that delivers epic storytelling but likely you’ll only watch a few times?  or is it one that, despite of its flaws, becomes a family staple year on year, watched without fail? Well it can truly be both.  But Love Actually certainly fits the later category – a locked on Christmas essential as key to the festive season as mince pies and a Christmas tree.  Yup Love Actually has a few issues but the charm, heart and love given out in those two and a quarter hours means that you just don’t care.  Truly a great feel good movie and truly one that deserves it’s standing as one of the best Festive treats you can watch.

Best Bit: The proposal/airport finale
