Mark Kermode Online In 3D with Richard Curtis - A Love Actually Special

This festive season, Mark Kermode takes a deep dive into his favourite ever Christmas movie, Love Actually, with writer and director, Richard Curtis..

Discussion programme 2020 38 mins


Mark and Richard chat about the genesis of the Christmas favourite - the joys of it and the painful and autobiographical elements in the storylines – and what Richard would do differently if he were to make the film now. Watch Mark do his version of Laura Linney's little dance for joy; hear Richard spill the beans about Hugh Grant and that dance, about filming Emma Thompson’s extraordinary scenes, casting Thomas Brodie Sangster, and why Colin Firth is always vaguely cross. Emma Freud joins in to talk about her part in the film and Richard Curtis reveals his own top three Christmas films.
