25 Days of Thanks- Day 20

Thankful- Love Actually

Another quick one tonight.

Love Actually (IMDB Link) is a romantic comedy set in London with an ensemble cast full of recognizable faces.

Great quotes throughout the whole movie… “There was more than one lobster present at the birth of Jesus?”

Great musical moments including the best darn use of Good King Wenceslas that I’ve ever seen…

Emotional moments that tug at the heart-strings…

But where it really gets to me is the opening and closing scenes in the movie.  I’m not giving away any huge spoilers here but what the filmmakers did was send a crew to the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport.  There, they simply taped people getting off their planes and excitedly greeting their loved ones.  From kids reuniting with their parents to old friends reconnecting, the scenes show unscripted joy and happiness.  Ordinary people, just getting off their flights, hugging it out with family and friends.

The quote used to start the movie… If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.

This year, of all years, I couldn’t agree more.

Thanks for reading…
