Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Love Actually is the highly awaited new screenplay and directorial debut from phenomenally popular screenwriter Richard Curtis. Weaving together the stories of ten couples, the movie is as real as our own lives, and as funny, wise, and poignant as only Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral) could create.

Set in contemporary London just before Christmas, the cast includes a lovelorn Prime Minister, an aging rock star, a sexually ambitious assistant, a newly widowed stepfather, a beautiful housekeeper, a straying husband, and other characters entangled in the silly, sloppy, sexy, sweet business of finding love. The film's stellar actors include Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, and others.

Introduced by Richard Curtis, the book features the full screenplay plus outtakes, behind-the-scenes snapshots, and more. With marvelous full-color photographs throughout, this smart, funny, romantic book is a valentine for anyone who still believes that despite the madness and uncertainty of modern life, love actually is all around.

Synopsis:

The hilarious new screenplay from the writer of Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill--coming to the big screen in November 2003 Starring Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, Rowan Atkinson, Alan Rickman, and a few surprise Hollywood superstars, Love Actually is the latest romantic comedy from the phenomenally successful screenwriter Richard Curtis. Set in London just before Christmas, the movie weaves together ten different love stories--sweet, sad, devious, and ridiculous. Hugh Grant is the unmarried UK Prime Minister who falls in love with the woman who brings his tea, Liam Neeson is a widower trying to raise his stepson, certain he will never find love again; other couples break up, make up, and generally make a joyful mess of their romantic lives--culminating on Christmas Eve night. The book features the final screenplay; color movie stills and outtake photos; dropped scenes; diary entries from the cast; and more. Everyone who loved Four Weddings and a Funeral will love Love Actually--coming to theaters November 2003.
