You may recall that in the film, Love, Actually, there is an iconic scene where the actor Andrew Lincoln comes to the home where Keira Knightley.lives and starts a playback of Christmas carols on his iPod, as he stands outside in the street and silently tries to unsuccessfully woo her with placards.
You may also know that much of the original cast has reunited for a sequel, of sorts, 14 years after the original film.
It's not a real sequel per se, but a 10-minute film that updates the characters with most of the original cast, and it's written and directed by the original writer-director Richard Curtis. (The only actors who I know for certain are not in it are Alan Rickman who passed away, and Emma Thompson who played his wife, and said Curtis had told her it was just too difficult and sad to work her into the story.)
The 10-minute film will play during a TV special that is -- well, let them tell you. But the date is this May 25. An absolutely adorable and thoroughly charming ad was just released, and here it is.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
