LOVE ACTUALLY

When Richard Curtis penned LOVE ACTUALLY, he set the standard for ensemble romantic comedies, and it is a pinnacle that no other film has managed to reach. This festive slice of cinema manages to pack in an extraordinary amount of actors, including Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Kiera Knightley, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy and lady favorites Hugh Grant and Colin Firth, while miraculously giving each performer enough of a storyline to truly shine. It's an incredible balancing act that results in a dizzying amount of swoons, not to mention the greatest Christmas song ever written. Sincere and never saccharine, this unabashedly romantic film reminds you that love actually is all around us. (Sarah Pitre)
