Love Actually | a movie trailer

Love Actually [extensive cast] Emma Thompson. Hugh Grant. Alan Rickman. & the list goes on.

My top favorite Christmas film. Love. Joy. Screwy & Screw-ups.

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

A film that begins at the end and specifically goes backward in its story telling. Quite an experience. Extremely unusual. It shows what can go sideways when wrong things are happening. Not meant for young children to view. – j.k

Owen | short film

Owen

Length 13m 37s

Hellen lives on the streets with her aging dog, Owen. Her luck seems to change when an opportunity for housing comes her way, but Owen is not allowed to join her.

Really rips at you heart and your compassion & the injustice toward the homeless people as well as their animal companions. Be prepared to feel deep emotions and the torn feelings Owen’s companion Hellen feels. It’s an embarrassment to the supposedly just community of animal caretakers who bring your anger to the surface. Unfortunately, what they do is not uncommon. They look so caring on the surface but underneath they can be just as cold and callous as the rest of those who don’t care about the homeless whether human or beast. I know this with way too much personal experience when it comes to those who are suppose to care about animals in need. – j.k
