Love Actually: 20 Years Later
Matt Roush says...
For those whose first reaction to the 2003 holiday favorite Love, Actually is to quote “To me, you are perfect,” this affectionate look back is an early Christmas gift. Diane Sawyer interviews the film’s stars, including Hugh Grant (who confesses he was reluctant to do the now-famous dance scene to “Jump”), Emma Thompson, Laura Linney and Bill Nighy, as well as writer-director Richard Curtis. The special also reflects on how the COVID-19 pandemic reinforced the movie’s themes of love and connection.
