Last night after dinner was eaten I went back down to my apartment to watch one of my favorite Christmas movies, Love Actually. I don't know what it is about this offbeat, sometimes crass movie that just fills me with the Christmas spirit.
I adore the story of Daniel and Sam. It is so sad when Daniel loses his wife, especially having to raise his wife's son And the way they bond over Sam's first love is just so darn sweet. The airport scene just makes my heart leap.
And there's Jamie and Aurelia. Oh my goodness, from the minute they meet you just know their story is going to have a happy ending. And when Jamie learns Portuguese and goes to find her it's just so darn cute.
I think my favorite couple from the movie is The Prime Minister (I looked him up on IMDB, he doesn't have a name in the movie!) and Natalie (who, by the way, I can't figure out why they call her fat throughout the movie. I think she's gorgeous). I just love how nervous they both are around each other when it's obvious that they're so meant to be.
But of course this scene is the one that both makes my heart melt and break all at the same time. Every time I watch it I wish that things would be different for this couple. But this movie isn't all perfect happy endings and you can't deny the sweetness of this.
Oh this movie. It's a wonderful Christmas movie.
What are your favorite moments from this movie?
