Summary

Intertwined stories examine nine very different couples in how they deal with their love lives in various interrelated tales all set during the frantic month before Christmas in London, England.

Is The Plot Interesting?

The plot is lots of different stories rolled into one and I really like it when movies do that. The plot does get quite emotional at times but that definitely shouldn’t stop you from watching it!

Is The Acting Good?

I have to say, what a great cast Love Actually assembled. They all play their part amazingly and not one person lets the team down. I also thought that the characters were well written.

Is The Directing Good?

Richard Curtis knew the story inside and out and this helped when it came to directing Love Actually. Not only was his directing good, but I found the writing to be of a high standard as well.

Is The Cinematography Good?

I enjoyed the style of the movie simply for the reason that it was very artistic and suited the movie down to a tee. Also, I thought that the camera used movement in a pretty smart way.

Is It Worth Watching?

Love Actually is a modern Christmas classic that does pull on the heartstrings. Although there were a few scenes that I thought could have been removed without effecting the plot at all, but overall it’s a solid Christmas movie with a great cast.

3/5

Hiya kids. Here is an important message from your Uncle Bill. Don’t buy drugs. Become a pop star, and they give you them for free!
