I’ve learned that ‘Love Actually’ is my favorite holiday film.

Watched this last night to kick off the holiday season. I love the multithreaded stories that are all connected by one or two degrees of separation.

Bill Nighy’s performance as Billy Mack is brilliant.

Add Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson, Ronan Atkinson, Kiera Knightly, a fast paced script and score, and you come pretty close to perfection.

From Love Actually:

Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world,

I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow airport.

General opinion makes out that we live in a world of hatred and greed

I don’t see that.

Seems to me that love is everywhere.

Often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy but it’s always there.

Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives,boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends.

When the planes hit the Twin Towers,none of the phone calls from people on board were messages of hate or revenge,they were all messages of love.

If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.”

(queue Bill Mack singing “Christmas is All Around Us”)

Happy Holidays.
