Christmas Clip Countdown: Pure Charm

If you missed Love, Actually (2003), directed by Richard Curtis, when it was released, think about renting it this holiday season.   The action takes place in the weeks leading up to Christmas, and revolves around eight couples who are dealing with different challenges in their love lives. All of the performances are excellent, and the story is human and funny and heartwarming without ever descending in sticky sentimentalism—the perfect treat!
