Paramount at the Movies Presents: Love Actually [R]
Movies | 12/3/2017 | 8:00PM
With a star-studded cast featuring Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson, Keira Knightly, and more, Richard Curtis’s Love Actually weaves the stories of eight couples together during the frantic month before Christmas. Love waxes and wanes; it changes and rearranges. These characters lives intertwine, and they’re all searching for the best Christmas gift of all – a little bit of love, actually.
Did You Know?
- The airport greeting footage at the beginning and end of the film is real. Richard Curtis had a team of cameramen film at Heathrow airport for a week, and whenever they saw something that would fit in they asked the people involved for permission to use the footage.
- Olivia Olson (Joanna), does all her own singing in “All I Want for Christmas is You” at the Christmas concert. She had such an amazing voice that Director Richard Curtis had it edited so it sounded more like a child singing.
- The idea for Mark’s surprise of the band singing “All You Need Is Love” at Peter and Juliet’s wedding came from Jim Henson’s funeral (which Richard Curtis attended) where all the puppeteers brought their Muppets and sang a song.
