Love Actually: Richard Curtis Love Actually tells eight tales that explore the many aspects of love. The new Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) falls for a member of his Downing Street staff (Martine McCutcheon). A writer (Colin Firth) who has escaped to France discovers love again. A wife (Emma Thompson) suspects she may be losing her husband (Alan Rickman) to a younger woman. All these and more stories reach a climax one Christmas Eve in London. Atonement: Fledgling writer Briony Tallis, as a 13 year old, irrevocably changes the course of several lives when she accuses her older sister's (Keira Knightley) lover (James McAvoy) of a crime he did not commit. Based on the British romance novel by Ian McEwan. The Holiday: After bad bouts of man trouble just before the holidays, Amanda Woods (Diaz) and Iris Simpkins (Winslet) are desperate for a change of scene. Traveling in opposite directions (Diaz to London, Winslet to Los Angeles), each finds herself alone in an unfamiliar town, but neither remains a stranger in her new surroundings for long. Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet join an all star cast that includes Jude Law, Jack Black, Eli Wallach, Ed Burns and Rufus Sewell in The Holiday, writer-director Nancy Meyers' latest take on the strange ways of love, and the high price of neglecting your own heart. Definitely, Maybe: Will Hayes is in the midst of divorce when his 10 year old daughter, Maya, starts to question him about his life before marriage. Will recounts to her the story of the three women who have shared his life. As Maya attempts to figure out which of the women became her mother she begins to understand the complexity of love and Will realises that it's never too late to go back. Pride and Prejudice: The story of love and misunderstanding in a very class conscious late 18th century England centres on the Bennet family, comprising five daughters whose mother (Brenda Blethyn) is determined to have them happily married off and their futures secured.
